Walk location:  The village of Fontes, the source of the river Lis, between Batalha and Leiria.

Originator:  Morag.

The Walk:  This is a hard walk with a total climb of 450 metres in sections.  There are some steep slopes so care is needed and walking poles are advised as well as good footware.  Bring plenty of water, sun cream and maybe an energy snack.

Timing:  The distance is 9 km taking just over 3.5 hrs.

Car Meeting Point:  At 10:00 am in the Estrada do Lis 8, in Fontes, by the Capela De Nossa Senhora De Lourdes.  I have put a later waiting time because of the distance to travel (50 km from São Martinho do Porto).

There is not a lot of parking space so II can give anyone a lift meeting at 08:45 in Intermarché car park.  I can take up to 3 people.  Send me an email if interested or possibly arrange your own car share.
