At “Largo dos Chorões”, you begin to climb during about 3km. From there the journey follows to the “Convento do Desterro” (an old ruined convent), and one of the city’s most well-known historical buildings, which is abandoned. Here you can find too a beautiful Cork Oak grove. From this point, the track becomes a narrow path, descending into a dense eucalyptus plantation, till it founds, at north the municipal road. After crossing the road, the path goes through more eucalyptus and a typical mountain landscape gradually starts to emerge. Sparse tree coverage, dense bushes and numerous rocky outcrops.
