Located upon Alva River and Caniça river stream, this is the place to see the valley of Mondego River.

In the surrounding area, there is a wood of century-old chestnut trees supporting a high diversity of fauna and flora species, some of them quite rare in Portugal.

Ribeira da Caniça has its own secrets too: the waterfalls, Cornos do Diabo, a curious shaped rock, and a hole where the water runs underground.
In Summer time the river beach of Lapa dos Dinheiros is an idyllic place.
