A string of lagoons sewn together by a thread, Ribetehilo (row of riverbanks), marks the meeting point of two different geological substrata. This path, which runs through a wooden walkway, runs along precisely the limit that in the past was the channel, barely recognizable today, of the waters that finally came to the surface. This group of lagoons, accompanied by a sea of stone pines and White Mountain, represent a contrast with the fundamentally sandy landscape of the environment. Cork oaks and strawberry trees are replacing the eucalyptus trees which were planted in the area to repopulate it years ago.
Along this route we will find explanatory posters on different topics of interest: the repopulation of eucalyptus and pine trees, peat and carnivorous plants, the strawberry tree and its fruits, palm hearts and its uses, the geological substrates and the color of the sands, or about the restoration of the landscape and its future vision that little by little, we are observing in a good part of the route. The linear path runs directly over the sand until it reaches a footbridge that crosses the lagoon and allows us to enjoy one of these spots of humidity from within. The comfortable wooden walkway allows us to get to know one of those lagoons, the tortoise lagoon, and the vegetation that today seeks to recover the appearance of these lands that our ancestors knew.
