Rua Eça de Queirós
With a length of 1.68 km, this circuit has a mixed surface, with asphalt in the urban area and gravel in the riverside area. With the riverfront as a backdrop, it begins in the parish of Moita and ends in the parish of Gaio/Rosário.
Caldas de Manteigas
Cascade with about ten meters, situated in a tight throat opened by the ribeira de Leandros. In winter, the waterfall provides a good show because it is all white, full of ice columns that show the thickness of stems of trees.
Serra de Monchique
This mountain range belongs to the Antigo Massif , south of the Tagus and divides the Alentejo from the Algarve. It is located between the Espinhaço de Cão and Caldeirão mountains. It has a maximum altitude of 902 meters (reached in Foia) and measures 30 km in length.
It is its privileged localization, south from Setúbal and between the Sado estuary and the Atlantic Ocean, that makes the Tróia Peninsula a natural paradise. In Tróia you will find countless beaches of white sand and a natural reserve with beautiful sights of the Arrábida Mountain. It is also possible to watch the colony of roazes-corvineiros (a dolphin species) that inhabit the estuary waters.
6050, São Matias
Walking route of 5.75 kilometers and expected to last 2 hours. It begins at the Velada Hydroelectric Power Station, built in 1935; it runs alongside Ribeira de Nisa. After passing the point where it crosses the Tagus, the most difficult point of the route is reached, as the eucalyptus trees become denser and the climb is steep, but it will be worth the effort, as, at the top, there will be an incredible panoramic view over the Nisa and the Tagus. The difficulty level of this tour is easy.
Penedo de Castro
Granite block located in the upper part of the village. It started out being called Penedo do Cheira, as it was located above the town of Cheira, but was later given the name Penedo de Castro, in 1908, in honor of the writer Augusto Mendes Simões Castro. This location offers an impressive panoramic view over Penacova.
Livraria do Mondego
Grandiose rock formation made up of Ordovician quartzites, located on the banks of the Mondego River. Its name probably comes from the arrangement of the rocks, which seem to suggest a shelf with books.
