Dinosaur Footprints - Sintra

Praia Grande do Rodizio - Sintra


Situated at about 50 meters from the sandy area of the Praia Grande Beach, in Sintra, in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park area, these Dinosaurs footprints were discovered in 1981, when a Geology student analysed this almost vertical chalk layer located in the South side of the beach.
According to studies, these deep footprints date back from the Early Cretaceous period and probably have 110 to 115 million years old. The footprints were possibly made by two different type of Dinosaurs: herbivores and carnivores, with a total of 66 footprints distributed by 11 tracks and other isolated.
