In this experience, cross part of the Costa Alentejana, in an interior very close to the coast, where it is possible from a distance to see the sea and feel the salty breeze and sometimes have some forays closer to the coast.
Traveling along secondary roads and some dirt paths, you will be able to appreciate the typical landscape of this Alentejo, with cork oak, holm oak, with good pastures for flocks of sheep and large cattle herds, as if they paint authentic pictures in this bucolic landscape.
When passing through the smal villages there is also the possibility to try the typical products of the region, with tastings of medronho (local fire water), jams, sweets and even listening to 'viola campaniça', one of the few originally Portuguese guitars and in the recovery phase by some of the local artists. In total, there will be 270km of stroll that will remain in memory forever.
