From Famalicão, rollercoaster to Rebolo & back
The walk starts along quiet roads, before crossing the motorway and transitioning to sandy tracks. The route is then a bit of a rollercoaster ride up and down hills which are steep in a few places. Poles are recommended for those who need them, and if it’s wet the lanes may become muddy so good walking footwear would be advised. We are surrounded by pine and eucalyptus woodland and later follow the motorway for a while on route to Rebolo. Then we cross back over the motorway and follow a quiet road and tracks back to the start point.
The walk is about 8 km and is expected to take about 2.25hrs
Car meeting and start point
|At the big parking place next to the Famalicão cemetery which lies just behind the farmácia. Coming from Sao Martinho or Alfeizerão the farmácia is on the right hand side before you reach the centre of the village of Famalicão. You should take a right turn off the main road about 30 metres before the farmácia. You may see the cemetery as you enter Famalicão about 100 metres back from the main road.
