The beautiful landscapes are one of the main features of this walk. Between valleys and mountains, hikers can delight themselves with the magnificent views that arise. Small towns and plantations comprise a unique landscape. A unique landscape comprised by small settlements and plantations.

This was a pleasant walk. We did about 4K, then returned. The part we walked was easy to follow starting in Prezeres. Two cute dogs came with us for the first part of the walk. Some great scenery at first, a little neglected agricultural land...More

Hint: At the turning point (at 50% of the trail's length), use the stairs to get to the other levada for the way back. Don't go all the way to the turning point, it's rocky and one might overlook the right path (like we did)....More
