Route of high skill level,  of bicycle touring mainly on asphalted in municipal and national roads, with a landscape predominantly characterized by cork oak and holm oak, as well as some cattle grazing areas. It is a cross-border route that was designed in the shape of eight, which means that there is an intermediate point where the section coincides and allows the user to choose whether to travel more kilometers and cross the border or return to that same place.

The main crossing points are the towns of "Galegos", "La Fontañera", "San Pedro", "Ponte Velha" and "Santo António das Areias".
