Núcleo de São Teotónio

12

Casa Nova da Cruz

25 KM

Except for the small labyrinthine alleys of São Teotónio, both on departure and on arrival, this trail runs mainly through rural and forest paths that show the essence of the interior of this region. The route runs through Delfeira and the village of Casa Nova da Cruz, after which the circuit is named and which is the only populated point on the route. It is therefore recommended to cycle with another rider. The major difficulty is to climb up a wide, sometimes cobbled path at km 12. It has no single track but has a small waterline crossing. Finally, the last part of the descent is quite steep, with tight turns and may have poor holding. We recommend special caution in this area.

Warnings

The route crosses and, at points, runs alongside a municipal roas, and therefore you may encounter some car traffic. Caution is recommended.

Part of the route coincides with the Rota Vicentina’s Historic Trail (GR11) – so it is very likely that you will encounter walkers.
