Praia da Vitória ponds, in the northern part of the central part of the town, is what is left of a former much wider wetland - Paul da Praia. The ponds attract a number of birds including several ducks and coots in late autumn and winter. Common Moorhen and Common Waxwing are breeding, and herons and egrets are often visiting the area.
