Full description
Take a walk through the beautiful countryside of Tavira. This easy level route will put everyone at peace, as the circular route will simply occupy the mind, as the repetitive motion of walking occupies the body. This walk is 9 kilometers long and depending on walking speed will take roughly two hours to walk. The track is mostly flat with one hill at the end of the walk. The trail surface changes between gravel and riverbeds so it is advised to wear comfortable shoes. 

Depending on the season, view the local farmers at work, and the Arab's Watermill churn. The stream can be easily located from the beautiful smell of fresh water and happy plants. The surrounding farms producing a selections of fruits and olives.

This trail starts and finishes in the Santa Catarina Village, which is known for delicious olive oil, terracota tiles and medronho.

The village landscape is particularly unique as it has been a crossroads since the Roman times, that have since built up a collection of silos.
