The Walk

The village of Espinheira and slopes of Serra do Bouro

The walk is initially along quiet roads through wooded countryside and a village, followed by a short stretch on a main road. We then make a fairly steep climb up the slopes of the Serra do Bouro – good views – and descend fairly gently to a second village with quiet road walking back to the start point. If it has been raining, there will water on the steep climb, so walking shoes & poles maybe necessary.

Timing

The walk is about 5.5 km and is expected to take about 1.5 hrs

  • Directions to meeting point:
  • From Caldas da Rainha take the fast road to Foz do Arelho (through the industrial estate). At the rocky roundabout turn right, signposted Serra do Bouro. You pass a quarry entrance on your left and about 1km further on you come to a cross roads. Go straight across – sign posted São Martinho do Porto, Igreja & Cemitério – and after 200 metres turn into a parking area on the left just before the church. There is a bandstand in the parking area. This is the meeting point. The church is in a place called Granja.
  • From São Martinho do Porto go to Salir do Porto and leave the main road by turning left after the roundabout to go through Casais do Salir. You descend into the valley and drive through woodland. As you exit the woodland you will see a church on your right and a village sign for Granja. Turn right into a parking area just after the church. There is a bandstand in the parking area. This is the meeting point. If you come to a cross roads turn round.
