Portugal Hiking Serra Da Estrela.jpeg


Last Sunday of the month: Exploring the mountain villages

To celebrate where we live, Camara of Fornos De Algodres, we explore a different village each month that makes up this area and visit a local treasure such as a Roman olive mill, a thermal spa or a magical feature in the natural world. 

The next village is Muxagata, Sunday 29th May 2022 

  • 9.45am to gather for a 10am prompt start 

  • The hike is approximately 5-6km. Bring water, good walking shoes and nibbles to share 

  • Return to the village at 1pm (approximately), coffee or food in a local cafe if you wish 

  • Meeting point: Click here

  • Local treasure: RioMondego and the Muxagata bird walk

  • What to bring: water, snacks to share, good walking boots and protection from the elements 


As is the nature of mountains, the tracks are up and down so we will move and rest as is needed for the group.
