From Chaves, in the North, almost on the border with Spain, to Faro, in the Algarve, on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, the longest Portuguese road has a length of about 739 km and many stories to tell. A perfect itinerary to discover the culture and landscape of our country in all its authenticity. Landscapes that range from mountain ranges to long plains, hidden creeks and vast water mirrors, lost villages and cities rich in heritage. But, above all, authentic people, true guardians of ancestral knowledge, ready to welcome you with open arms. Accept the invitation and slow down. There is a long way to go. Give it all the time in the world.
