Troviscais and Mira
Take the opportunity to enjoy a short stop at around 25km, on your first visit to the River Mira, at Casa Branca, an ancient and formerly important river harbour.
At 37 km, if you still have the energy, make a diversion of 750m to the right (a climb of 85m) to the top of Cerro de São Domingos where there once was a chapel and from where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Monchique mountain range, Vila Nova de Milfontes, Porto Covo, Sines and trace where the Mira River snakes through hills and valleys to its estuary.
3 Km – Cova da Zorra (water point)
15 Km – Castelão
19 Km – Troviscais
24 Km – Carrasqueira (in the proximity)
32 Km – Vale Bejinha
The route crosses and runs along some streets in the centre of São Luís, it crosses the N120 twice, sometimes follows small roads and lanes and you may find some traffic.
A part of the route coincides with the Historical Path (GR11) and some Circular Routes, all of the Rota Vicentina, so it is very likely that you will encounter walkers.
It may be necessary to open livestock protection gates. Close them after passing through.
After heavy rainfall some paths may be flooded or very muddy, requiring caution.
