A easy route departing from the entrance to Freixo, with gentle climbs, typical of the Alentejo. Starting in Freixo, where you will find several support points such as cafes, restrooms and restaurants. Leave the village and follow until the N254, the busiest road this route passes. As the main connection to Évora, it is used daily by locals and heavy vehicles that bring and take products from local industries such as wine and olive oil. At the entrance of Redondo we can see the covered bullring and the large cylindrical storage deposits, belonging to the company AZAL - Azeites do Alentejo, which mark the landscape. Then turn left to return to the entrance to Freixo. The route coincides with route 2 and 3.
