Flora of the Arrabida Hills

The forest-clad, elongated hummock of the Serra da Arrábida is a veritable oasis of natural vegetation amid the suburban sprawl of the Setubal peninsula, with an incredibly diverse wildlife to match. Its scientific value and state of conservation has led to this protected area being included in the European Network of Biogenetic Reserves.

More than 1,000 species of vascular plants have been recorded from the Arrábida natural park (10,821ha; also a reserva biogenética).
