It is little known that the oldest fossilised dinosaurs’ embryos in the world were found in Portugal and are on display at the local museum at Lourinhã, together with the second largest collection of fossilised dinosaur eggs in the world.


Lourinhã is close by to the battlefield of Vimeiro. Dinosaur footprints can be seen at Cabo Espichel, south west of Lisbon and the Serra de Aire, on the drive to the North from Lisbon.
