The Paleozoic Era began around 419 million years ago. Here you can discover the amazing animals that inhabited the earth before the appearance of the giant dinosaurs.
It was during the Triassic period when the great kings of the Earth appeared. It was during this period that several types of dinosaurs first appeared.
Lourinhã is one of the richest areas in the world in terms of Jurassic remains. Here you can observe unique species. You can also see the Diplodocus Hallorum, which is about 45 metres long!
It is in this period that you can find the most famous dinosaur species such as the T. Rex (Tyrannosaurus rex) and the Triceratops. It’s at the end of this period that the extinction of dinosaurs takes place.
In this trail you will be able to observe animals that ruled the lakes, seas and oceans from 450 million years ago until today.
Although much of this Era was quite warm, the last millions of years have ushered in one of the most important moments in the Earth’s history: the ice age.
