Circular route that leaves from the door of "Aldeia da Serra", to the right towards "Estremoz" and back to the mountains towards the "Igreja da Monte Virgem", leaving to the left the "Convento de São Paulo". It runs parallel to the mountain, through what is the most endogenous area of this place, until you reach the top of the mountain - "Ermida de São Gens". Then return through the other side of the mountain, following the valley towards the south passing close to "Anta da Candeeira" and returning to "Aldeia da Serra".
