Start at the Herdade da Corte, but do not stop ... The richness of the local fauna and flora deserves a closer look. Foot by foot, you will discover the charms of another Algarve. The cadenced step is naturally interrupted by several stops to observe the simple beauty of willow and ash, in a course among rosemary, thorns, stems, carob and arbutus, where the landscape changes color as we continue the walk. Then the green of eucalyptus forests, cork oak and pine, gives way to cultivated fields of wheat and barley and orchards of oranges. Through the mountains there are streams running. Here and there we contact the people in their daily labors. Be surprised by a "bom dia" salute, coming from a cork shooter, a shepherd, a miller, or a woman working on the loom or the vegetable garden. Live with the hospitality of the people, around the carob bread or "rolão", the "medronho" and the chorizo. A privilege, still to be able to admire some local arts and crafts, as in the artisan industry of the clay, found in the several clay sheds present in this parish, testimonies of an ancient knowledge.
And, in the end, come and enjoy your conquest, with a good, very fresh white wine, on the terrace of the Herdade da Corte, while waiting for your snack...
Reason enough for our commitment to the promotion of Hiking in the Algarve, close contact with nature and awareness of the importance of the protection of natural and cultural resources, promoting well-being and quality of life to those who practice it .
