Route in a tennis racket shape, that leaves towards Redondo. Go around Redondo on the right and head west towards Évora and turn again towards Santa Susana. In Santa Susana there are cafes and toilets. Leaving Santa Susana, pass the bridge and 4.3 km later turn left towards Montoito. Here the landscape is dominated by irrigated crops. The route will pass the Castle of Valongo, standing at the top and in the middle of vineyards. Go to Montoito and Montoiro Villages where there are some services. Then continue through Casas Novas de Marés and Pias, following from there towards Santiago Maior. About 8.8 km further on, the route would take you to Foros da Fonte Seca to go inside the village, passing Taberna do Pateiro where you turn right and head north to Redondo. Arriving at Redondo, turn right passing the Municipal Market, next to the castle and the Museu do Barro. Follow here passing Intermarché, turn left and right again at the fire station and go back to the beginning.
