A hundred metres further on, join the GRZ, schist route PR4 PPS, which will take you to a place called Antro dos Penedos. On the horizon is one of the most beautiful landscapes of the entire GRZ, as well as the two Janeiros, the one above and the one bellow, Serra do Machialinho and the meanderings of the Zêzere, which are classified as geo-site by UNESCO. About 500 feet below, the PR4 PPS moves away from the GRZ, which continues for another 1km to Admoço.
