A circular walk from the church in Alvados to Sao Bento, and then back via a different route
The walk starts at the church (“Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Consolação, Alvados) in the village and is signposted (as PR3.1) to Sao Bento. It starts with a fairly steep ascent, along a narrow path and offers good views of the surrounding countryside. Then there is a fairly steady descent into the village of Sao Bento.
Having stopped briefly in the village, we then take a different route out of the village (following PR3 signs) – this is a longer, fairly steady ascent again with good scenic views. The walk concludes with a fairly steep ascent down a rocky path before strolling through the Alvados village back to the start point.
Poles and walking shoes are recommended for those who need them. Bring your own refreshments as there are no coffee stops en route.
The walk is about 14 km and is expected to take about 4 hrs.
