Route 3 – Eastern

There is plenty of history on offer in this municipality and the route is enjoyable although no less difficult for all that. Comprising various uphill and downhill sections, there are surprises and moments of sheer delight in store as you feast your eyes on the panorama of the Beliche and Odeleite dams. Although short, some of the uphill sections are steep, so you need to be physically fit and be able to judge your pace. The freshness of the scenery around Quebradas will help you recharge your batteries; from here you can catch a glimpse of deep lakes and the outline of the neighbouring hamlets across the border, in Spain. And once you reach Almada do Ouro, it’s time to stop for a rest as you admire the spectacular view over the River Guadiana.
