Detour to Moinho das Freiras Intermodal Station along the Schist Walking Trail of Pedrógão Pequeno II.
The Schist Walking Trail of Pedrógão Pequeno II starts at the market and descends from the centre of the village to the river Zêzere along an old Roman road. Along this stretch you will be able to admire the magnificent granite escarpments of the Zêzere Valley and perhaps even be surprised by the round-winged eagle that usually flies over these parts. It connects with the Intermodal Station of Moinho das Freiras, or Friars’ Mill.
Stroll across the Philippine Bridge and try the fish soup.
