Reserva Natural del Estuario del Tajo - EVOA, espacio de visitantes y observación de aves
The diversity and abundance of migratory water birds gives to the Tagus estuary the status of the most important wetland in Portugal and one of the most important in Europe. During periods of migratory passage, this area receives more than 120,000 birds that rest in this place before continuing their journey. Some stay for a longer period, then returning to the areas of nesting or wintering.
EVOA is situated in the Natural Reserve of theTagus Estuary (RNET), that has 14192ha and is included in the Natura 2000 network since 1980 and is recognized as a wetland of international importance (Ramsar Site). The visitor can enjoy the wild birds, mostly in three fresh water wetlands, with 70 ha, created by the project and managed for birds. The necessary tranquility and convenience for visitors are guaranteed through hidden trails and hides that are strategically located.
