The path starts at the edge of the village of Entradas with its streets of white houses, church and square representing the traditional urban settlement of Alentejo. Decades ago the farmers would bring flocks of sheep to this gateway and lead them into the white fields of Ourique. The combination between extensive agriculture (cereal production), grazing and rotation, created a habitat for many species (Great Bustard, Common Crane, Red Kite, Montagu's Harrier, Lesser Kestrel, Stone Curlew, Black-bellied Sandgrouse, etc.). Those are just some of the species that you may see along the way on a smooth dirt road, suitable for a pleasant hike.
