Parish of Alcobaça municipality.

Pedra Redonda, limestone outcrop, ammonites.

In the parish of Benedita, not far from Turquel and near the slope of Serra dos Candeeiros, there is a very small village known as Pedra Redonda (Round Stone). In its central square around which developed the locality, at Rua da Pedra (Stone Street), we can observe an 150 million years old Upper Jurassic limestone outcrop with a huge ammonite, possibly from the Simoceratinae sub-family. It was this rounded ammonite which gave the name to this village.
