After leaving Barão de São João, the route rises slightly through a valley with few rural dwellings, about 2 km, then follows the ascent of the hill where you can see another slope and the valley that follows the ascent. At its summit we will find a centenary eucalyptus and where you can see three other elevations of the Algarve: Serra de Monchique, Serra do Caldeirão and Monte Figo and where you can also see a large extension of the coastline. Then walk down to Barão de São João.

NOTE: Bring comfortable clothes and shoes for walking, backpack with water and snacks. The use of walking poles is recommended.

How to get there

By car: Arriving at Lagos city, at the roundabout of the Municipal Stadium, follow towards Bensafrim. At the exit of Portelas, take the EM 531 to the left, in the direction of Barão de São João, passing by the site of Monte Judeu. Continue straight ahead, towards Barão de S. João, and after entering the village of Barão de São João you must follow the signs that indicate the National Forest.
