In the village of Bemposta, just to the right when you reach the national road, take a moment to appreciate Gilberto’s house and its facade covered with phrases alluding to politics, human rights and Benfica.
Km 34 – village of Bemposta
The route crosses part of the town of Odemira and in Bemposta to the N263 and at these points you can encounter some car traffic. Caution is recommended.
Part of the route coincides with the Rota Vicentina walking paths – namely the Historical Way (GR11) – so it is very likely that you will meet with hikers.
It might be necessary to open livestock protection gates which should always be closed again after passing through.
At 1.5 km the course comes down to a small single track where there is a very narrow section along the edge of a small water channel. Consider walking with your bike here.
The final part of the last descent is on calçada, which can sometimes be very slippery.
The route does not cross any fords or waterways.
