First, the "Buçaco Forest" is not a forest, it is what we call "mata", I think we do not have any thing we can really call "a forest"

And it is not that big, as you can see in the picture bellow.
The greenest part in the middle is the "mata do Buçaco", with the convent in the middle.
As you can see, that place is not big (you can see with Google Earth that this image is something like 9500 metres wide) and the place is
Also, Portugal is not a "new" place, it is independent since 1139, where I live, Almada, has been inhabited since at least the Roman period (we have
some Roman tanks for making salted fish) and we do not have any tradition of anything like Bigfoot.
Trust me, if we had a Bigfoot in here, we already have made some special dish with it, maybe something like "pézinhos de coentrada".
PS: "pézinhos de coentrada" is a dish made with pig's feet, we in Portugal eat almost anything we catch.
Thanks for the info man. I knew Portugals history, I didn't think I say it was new, but maybe I did. I found the link of the forest by googling, I
thought it had an interesting history. I agree with your proud culture, it is lacking these days where I'm from. Anyway, if you see Bigfoot there
anyway, let me know.
