Stage 2 Quadrazais - Sabugal

Villages where you can start this stage: Malcata

This stage starts near the village of Quadrazais. From the village, one has to find its way to the Côa river (1,2km without signs). The starting point can be found on the south shore of the river. From there, the path crosses hills and woods from the Natural Reserve of Malcata, reaching a mountain top called Alto da Machoca. There one has a privileged view towards the Côa and the city of Sabugal.

The Route follows its way to the village of Malcata, where it is possible to visit the village's communitarian oven. Finally, the path skirts around the dam of Sabugal. Before one reaches the city, there is a chance to pass by the river beach or to visit the Zé Ricardo's mill. The stage ends near the Castle, already inside the city limits. This stage overlaps in part with the tracks 2 and 3 from the Mountain-Bike Centre of Sabugal.
