Biospots of the Paiva Walkways

The Biospots of the Paiva Walkways are spread across the left bank of the Paiva River, between the bathing area of Areinho and Espiunca. Situated right in the Natura Network Site, these nine biospots highlight some of the most emblematic and common species of the insect diversity (such as Macromia splendens, Oxygastra curtisii) and plants (such as Salix alba, Arbutus unedo), and challenge the visitors to observe the existing animal species in the river and in the riparian gallery (such as Chondrostoma duriensis, Lutra, Alnus glutinosa, Fraxinus angustifolia, Quercus robur, Ruscus aculeatus).
