Circular route with Red Difficulty Level. This is the second longest route in the network, it extends to several parishes and has as main crossing points the "Aldeia da Esperança" and "Aldeia dos Mosteiros" where you can find various services from cafes, post office, toilets and water points. The landscape is dominated by the cork oak and holm oak, but there is also extensive grazing fields, both for cows and sheep. This route coincides with other routes in this Cycling Center, that have different distances and degrees of difficulty, allowing you to choose to follow, for example, the black route in the Monasteries or shorten into other routes in other places. Upon arrival at Arronches, the route takes a small detour to pass the riverside area, where the picnic area and the motorhome park are located.
