"Looking west from the southern end of the Serra da Estrela, one discovers a monotonous succession of rounded peaks that hide valleys with large drops in level and embedded water lines. At a turn along the path, unexpectedly, the Mata da Margaraça appears, mixed of Atlantic elements - oak (Quercus robur) and chestnut (Castanea sativa) - and Mediterranean - strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo), walnut tree (Prunus lusitanica) and laurel (Laurus nobilis) - housing rare species of flora – case of the Iberian endemism Veronica micrantha or Solomon's seal (Polygonatum odoratum) - constituting, due to its small size and insularity, a very vulnerable system. Mata da Margaraça is a testament to the forest that would have covered the schist slopes of the mountainous areas of the center from Portugal.

The water richness of the Serra do Açor Protected Landscape, with 373.39 ha, is associated with the presence of numerous reptiles and amphibians, as well as an interesting procession of passerines (aka birds), a dozen species of micromammals and many others of bats. Inside this protected area, a curious geological feature, Fraga da Pena, hides a waterfall flanked by leafy vegetation, a scene that never ceases to surprise in the Açor mountain range.

Pardieiros, the only village within this protected area, still retains the knowledge of manually manufacturing wooden spoons, while the terraces or quelhadas, separated by old schist walls, show the ancient agricultural use of the slopes."
