Nature and heritage are the basis of the Geopark. Lovely little villages, nice people, good food. Good choice for weekends.

Could've been five points but...

Information and communication is very important. The Geopark iwere.massive area surfacing different villages and cities. The website of Geopark noted you can visit it by train via Castelo Branco or Vila Velha de Rodao. That's not quite right. I stopped of at Castelo Branco. From there, you're still 20km from the first interesting point of the Geopark. There wasn't a bike rental at Castelo Branco, so getting there without a car is out of the question. Also the adress for the Geopark given on trip advisor is the adress of a traveling agency that has practicaly nothing to do with the Geopark, although I didn't go inside its office, so I can't say if they sold tours for the geopark or not.
So then I tried my luck and took the train to Vila Velha do Rodao. From there you can take some interesting trails. I've seen vultures in the wild, made a sturdy walk to king Wamba's castle, etc...
Also the information I got from touristic centres was really basic. Everywhere the maps, signs,... felt like they were made by different organisations, so it was hard to figure out where the points of interest were.
The Geopark has probably a lot more to offer than I've seen, but you should go there with a car.

The area that is covered by this Geopark, covered by the UNESCO sponsorship, is one of the most wilderness area on the border to Spain

The personal guide very friendly. I recommend to have a look to it from the city of Penha Garcia, in the top of the mountain, and then go down in a nice walking to visit the mills.

Many nice activities are available at the Geopark Naturtejo. I recommend the village and the walks of Penha Garcia (trilobite trails, etc), including a nice river pool to freshen up...
