Self-guided walking program Alentejo Portugal

Alone, together, or with your walking group you can make 8 walks in and around natural park Serra de São Mamede, starting at the quinta. The walks of the self-guided walking program are very diverse concerning both nature and landscape. The walks vary in length from 12-18 kilometers and are easy to walk with a basic walking stamina.
Two free days are included in the self-guided walking program that allow you to further explore the Alto Alentejo or spend time on the quinta. On the quinta, you can enjoy a good book in the shade of the olive trees or at the waterside.
