It is also a wonderful place to buy traditional products like, cheese, ‘pão com chourico’ and cakes.
In the hike we will first walk in the urban areas of Mafra, and then dive into a peaceful green valley, where we will fell like being in the countryside. We’ll walk for about 3 hours / 8 km.
Then we’ll return to Lisbon, Campo-Grande, by bus. I am expecting to be back in Lisbon, Campo Grande around at 19:30.
We are going to travel by bus. Tickets are bought from the driver.
If it is more convenient for you, you can meet us directly in Mafra.
