The Walk

From Famalicão via Rebolo up the ridge to Raposos

The walk starts along sandy tracks, with loose sand in places on flat ground, through pine and eucalyptus woodland and open fields to Rebolo. There we cross the motorway and ascend the ridge by an overgrown track. The ascent is steep, but short and is followed by a muddy field. We join a road and enter Raposos. Next is an optional circuit of open orchards with fine views. We join the main road through the village and then make a steep descent on, earth tracks, back to the valley. The final stage is along a quiet, flat road.


The walk is 12 km and is expected to take about 3hrs

Car meeting and start point

At the big parking place next to the 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.39.534269, -9.083181
