Selvagens Islands Natural Reserve

The Selvagens are composed of two small groups of islands, of which the Selvagem Grande, Selvagem Pequena and Ilhéu de Fora are the most important.

This natural reserve was created in 1971 (one of the oldest in Portugal) for the necessary protection of the marine avifauna.

Because of the unique conditions offered for the nesting of marine bird species, these islands are also well known as an 'ornithological paradise'.
