Tenis Racket-shaped path that leaves the entrance door of Freixo towards Redondo to take the road that passes the mountain towards Estremoz. You pass the "Aldeia da Serra" by the entrance door and follow the mountain range through native vegetation. Go pass the door of the "Convento de São Paulo" and continue up to the top, where the landscapes are unique and you can see a few hundred kilometers ahead. Then go down to Estremoz, but at km 25 turn left towards Glória. Pass the Church of Nossa Senhora da Glória and continue then to the main road. There, turn right and continue for about 2 km to turn right again towards "Rio de Moinhos". The trail passes near "Quinta do Zambujeiro", and just ahead, turns left, passing the brook and going up  to Rio de Moinhos  and to the entrance of the Cycling Center. Then continue to Alandroal through the center of the village. Continue to Terena and go to the "Aldeia dos Orvalhos". A little further on, return to Redondo and at the entrance of the "Foros da Fonte Seca", turn into the village that passes north towards Redondo. Arriving at Redondo, follow routes 2, 3 and 6 through the Municipal Market, castle and Barro Museum before returning to the entrance to Freixo.
