caves of Moeda, silver coast, Portugal

Located at just 3 kms away from Fatima Sanctuary, the Moeda caves were discovered in 1971 by hunters while trying to chase a fox. After crossing a small hole in the bushes they become astounded by the beauty of the caverns, the stalactites and the richness of the limestone formations.

With a depth of 45 meters measured from the entrance to the deepest point, the reachable length of 350 meters and the all year round temperature around 18C, the Moeda caves are a underground striking natural asset worth a visit.
