Circular route of medium difficulty, 4.5 km long and with several points of interest. A diverse route with a lot to offer, mainly in terms of landscape and cultural interests.
This is a route that goes through past trails of the Lapedo Valley and visits the "Abrigo do Lagar Velho", home to the “Menino do Lapedo” (Child of Lapedo), a child buried here about 29 thousand years ago. It also crosses through calcareous slopes, water courses and a Mediterranean forest, in a very dynamic path that mixes trail terrain with some asphalt and a constant variation of slopes. It is an interesting route all year round, that can be visited more than once, as the changing seasons evident in the landscape, offer different experiences to the user at different times of the year. Discover the Lapedo Valley, where cultural heritage meets natural beauty.
