Walking tour on Algarviana Route from Barranco do Velho to Salir

The course, sector 6 of Algarviana Route, it's 269M accumulated altitude and is considered easy. It's start on Barranco do Velho and end in beautiful village of Salir. 

This section of this trail starts at the parking lot of Barranco do Velho’s old church, and begins with a relatively flat area, passing through Eira de Agosto’s windmill, and goes down to a very attractive hill to Carrascalinho.

After that we walk in the Rio Seco stream that marks the beginning of the Algarve’s barrocal, where the landscape changes into largely agricultural land. Going along walled paths and old small scattered houses, we reach vilage of Salir. In Rio Seco we had enjoyed a small lunch in the shade of the trees listening to the sound of water running quietly in the stream.

The view of the Algarve hills, the land full of marigolds and the landscape at some points of this path was stunning. Undoubtedly, is a route to be part of the best moments of the vacation in the Algarve.
