A linear hike, rich in natural beauty and gorgeous landscapes. The entire route follows the Sertã riverstream, linking the river beach in Troviscal to the town of Sertã. Apart from its natural value, this is also a very pastoral route, with many markers of the traditional agrarian lifestyle of the population of these lands like terraced fields, pasture, mills, weirs, water channels and aqueducts, wells, and much more.
