Remarkable viewpoint over the villages of Maxial and Alpalhão, situated at the top of the GEOSSITIO of Penedo do Aivado.
From this point the walker has a panoramic view of the whole Beirã and Alentejo mountain range.
The Geosite Penedo do Aivado integrates the Armorican Quartzite Formation, formation constituted, from the base to the top, by conglomerates and arkosic sandstones, to which a set of quartzite benches of variable thickness is superimposed.
The Penedo do Aivado is located in the Southeast flank of the Envendos-Carvoeiro syntrophic and the formation in which it is framed is characterized for presenting abundant ichnofossils, some visible near the Miradouro das Cruzianas.
