Serapias strictiflora

"In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught."

Baba Dioum, 1968

Maybe because of their shear beauty or of their amazing survival and reproduction strategies, orchids fascinate human beings since ancient times. In the plant kingdom, they are on a level of evolution comparable to the human species in the animal kingdom.

Arrábida has the unique characteristic of concentrating about half of all portuguese wild orchid species. In this book you'll find fascinating photographies and much more information about all of them. Use it to admire the particular beauty of each flower or as an identification guide when walking these mountains and valleys.
