Famalicão to Raposos (fam11L)

Web page in construction

Walk location: The walk (2.5 hrs) from Famalicão is on farm tracks and roads with one climb to the ridge top.

Originator:  John

The Walk: It is initially through flat farmland to Rebolo and then climbs steeply to Raposos. We walk through Raposos and then descend through farmland and a wooded valley to Marcarca. We return to the start via a flat eucalyptus plantation. At Raposos there are fine views of São Martinho do Porto and the coast.

Timing: The walk is about 9km and is expected to take about 2.5 hrs, plus extra for coffee.


Car Meeting Point: At 9:30 am at the big parking place next to the cemetery which lies just behind the farmácia. Coming from São Martinho or Alfeizerão the farmácia is on the right hand side at the beginning of the village of Famalicão. You may see the cemetery as you enter Famalicão about 100 metres back from the main road.

      The gpx file is now visible. I replaced the “&” with “and” in the shortcode name.

      Sorry for the delay.
