A circular walk around Aljubarrota & Cadoiço
From the village of Aljubarrota and then the outskirts of the village of Cadoico.
This walks begins with the significance of Aljubarotta to the birth of Portugal as a nation. Aljubarotta is famous for the battle of 14 August 1385 when Portugal first established independence from the Castilian Kingdom. Hence the significance of the timing of this walk. It’s a combination of country and village roads and bush tracks.
The walk is about 8.6 km / approx. 2 hours
Car meeting and start point
|The meeting/start point is just off the first roundabout on the N8 coming from Alcobaca. You’ll see a garden centre on the right just past the roundabout heading north through Aljubarotta.|
There is plenty of car parking on the lower or south side of the Garden Centre (Teciplante – Viveiros de Plantas).
For those who wish to take refreshments after the walk, we will covene at The Coffee ” TORCATO ” in Aljubarrota
