Peninha Sanctuary - Route 2

Rate this item
(0 votes)

This walk starts in Malveira da Serra, south east of the Sanctuary.

For this walk a high level of fitness is not necessary because it’s a relatively easy walk. The walkway is at an incline, but it’s a gradual climb. The difference between this walk and the Route 1 walk is that it passes through the woods.

A completely different atmosphere, with much bigger trees and different vegetation and on a hot day one is more protected from the sun. Once we get to the top, the view is as spectacular as in Route 1.

    This is a wonderful walk rewarded by spectacular views of Cascais and the coast from the summit . Rosemary has an in depth knowledge of the route and its extensive plant life and her insightful commentary along the way makes for an interesting and enjoyable experience. Thank you Rosemary for being a superb guide .

    We had a Greet time during this walk! Rosemary is a great guide. She knows a lot about the nature and the culture in Cascais and the region around it. The hike itself is beautifull. You see a lot of nature and go on paths with a lot of plants around it. In the middle of the hike you have a beautifull view over Cascais and the beaches (if the weather allows it). We would defenitely recommand any hike with Rosemary!

    Rosemary Thankyou for the great morning we had.

    Greetings Jordi and Julia
