Guide: Pedro Pinto

In this walk we will go through a small part of sector 13 of GR13 - Via Algarviana, this Long Distance Path that crosses the inland of the Algarve from Alcoutim to Cabo de São Vicente.

The course will develop in a typical barrocal landscape with dense Mediterranean scrub and where you will be surprised by a vast cork oak, with a low relief.

Note: The route is linear, so there will be a bus that will take participants from the meeting point to the starting point of the walk.

How to get there

From the Cultural Center (450m): On foot, exiting from the event’s reception (Cultural Center), go downwards (south) along the road “Estrada da Mata Nacional” for about 300 meters. Turn left “Jacques Favre Castelo Branco” street, passing by the Municipal Market, following the road until its end (150m), reaching the street “Capitão Francisco da Silva Rijo”. Turn right and walk 100m.

From Lagos: Arriving in the city of Lagos, at the Municipal Stadium roundabout, head towards Bensafrim. At the exit of Portelas, take the EM 531 on the left, towards Barão de São João, passing by Monte Judeu. Keep going straight ahead, towards Barão de S. João. Once within Barão de São João, keep straight, bearing right towards “Bensafrim”, going around the Church. You can park at the exit to the village, in a parking lot on the right, behind the church and cemetery, and walk the rest of the way.
