“Any telegraphic description would simply say 2 peninsulas, 5 islands, 6 piers, marshlands and a scent of salt. On the one side, the sea, on the other and before land, the estuary.”

“One of the interesting originality is the general layout of the system itself, forming roughly a scalene triangle (one vertex is the so-called Santa Maria cape, on Barreta island).”

“The 5 barrier islands and two salt marshes extend over 55 km. The lagoons are very dynamic systems and this, in particular, has undergone morphological changes as a result of the tsunami caused by the huge 1755 earthquake wich destroyed Lisbon.” (2019)
