At this location, known as "Ribeira dos Nunes," the GRZ meets the PR8 PGR, the “Bouçã Lagoon Shore". Both routes follow a forest path, with the river Zêzere always at hand. After having travelled about 4.5 km, you will come to the Bouçã Intermodal Station where you can find a small picnic area and other support structures. After over 500 metres of identical characteristics, this route ends at the Information Panels. Given the impossibility of obtaining drinking water or any other type of supplies on the next few kilometres of the GRZ, take note of the warning.

Tips, hints and links

This is located on the border of Graça Parish, Pedrógão Grande Municipality, in a place known as Ribeira dos Nunes. Here, the Ribeira Nodel, which rises north of Nodeirinho, in a place known as "Nodelinho”, embraces the River Zêzere. This river is the main watercourse running through Graça Parish. Its banks retain a diverse natural heritage of oaks, laurels, arbutus, and many other species characteristic of Mediterranean forests. It is a very ecologically important space because, for example, the Iberian nase come here during spawning season when the moon is full. Otters too found their habitat here, and you can easily find traces of their presence. From here, follow the forest path, with the River Zêzere always be by your side. Along the way you will notice the scents caused by the presence of species such as lavender, rock rose, arbutus, rue, heather and others.
