Hiking and running in Portugal
Walking, but also running, is wonderful from the hiking paradise Quinta do Pomarinho in Alto Alentejo Portugal. The quinta offers fantastic views of the adjacent hills of the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park where you will find unusual birds, animals and plants. In the nature park and the surrounding area of the park you can make beautiful hiking trips where you will find besides an overwhelming nature also castles, monasteries, historic villages, fortified towns, dolmens, rock drawings and remains from Roman times. We have about thirty (described) hiking routes ready for you on the quinta. These are mostly marked hiking trails which vary in length from a few to 18 kilometers. The quinta itself offers an oasis of space, privacy and tranquility and is a great home base for individual walking: alone, together, with your family or with your own (walking) club.
