Route 11 – Eastern

The sounds of the countryside and the intense scents of the upland flora combine to make this ride unforgettable. The first goal is to reach Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo and, from there, to head inland and uphill to Alcaria do Cume, one of the landmarks in terms of height in the eastern Algarve. As you prepare to explore the winding roads of the uplands of Tavira on your way to Alcoutim, you will be riding at a height of over 500 metres. The Portuguese bank of the River Guadiana offers a peaceful atmosphere and will whet your appetite for some of the tasty dishes you can sample in Guerreiros do Rio, such as freshwater fish. The return ride is flatter and takes you through Azinhal to the historic town of Castro Marim.
