The Cave of Algar da Pena


The Cave of Algar Pena is a candidate to 7 Wonders of Portugal as a result of the application submitted by the city of Santarem.

It is located in the deep karst of the Natural Park of “Serra D'Aires and Candeeiros”, in the parish of Alcanede, municipality of Santarém, and it is the right place to observe the nature in a unique splendor.

 

The Wonder of Nature was accidentally discovered in 1983, during a stone extraction, and currently is the largest known room cavity in the country and is composed of a vertical shaft 35 meters deep that leads to a huge room of 105,000 cubic meters.
