This circular path will start at the rural village of Santana da Serra, in the municipality of Ourique. The path will lead you on a journey over the hills and valleys of Lower Alentejo with the Algarve at a short distance. You will cross areas with arbustus shrubs whose fruits are used to produce a famous liquor that you might like to try in the nearby village. Honey and mushrooms are also cultivated in this area. The path will return to Santana da Serra where you might like to try some traditional food including sausages from black pigs that you might spot along the way.
