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.

o local é muito agradável. No entanto o trilho está mal sinalizado e não pode ser percorrido na totalidade pois é cortado por propriedades privadas que estão fechadas
