Stage 9 Cidadelhe - Algodres

Village where you can start the stage: Quintã de Pêro Martins

This stage starts in the village of Cidadelhe. The Route makes its way through the village and goes down to the Côa River, first along rougher footpaths, then along a car road, ending up in the 'Union Bridge'.

The next section of this stage follows the road on its way up to the entrance of the Faia Brava Reserve. From this point, the way continues through forest tracks and footpaths, passing by large areas of cork oak and holm oak, interrupted by olive tree plantations and pastures.

At a point of the way there is a hundred-year-old tree. Around there one can observe the vertical escarpments of Côa. Finally, the Route gets away from the river through olive tree and almond tree plantations and vineyards, to arrive at the village of Algodres.
