These stones are, so it seems, a unique geological feature. The interpretation center shows an excellent 3D movie with a goos explanation. Don't miss it! The zone has great natural beauty.

Unless you´re really into geological phenonema not at all worth it. Very unimpressive, only a few tiny pock marks on the rocks.

This site is superbly laid out with walkways above the bedrock. The Centre opposite, built within an old dwelling, is a star attraction. A superb 3d film, and a real star in the education officer running the centre. Top feature

I recommend to all my family and friends who visit Arouca to go to this place. You must go and see with your own eyes- no words are able to describe!

It's a very interesting place to visit, from what I gather the only place of its kind in all of europe. One thing I could say, though, is that it surely needs more surveillance to prevent people from taking home the rocks (pedras parideiras).
