CH2 Vale Seco to Cercal

Stage CH2 of the Rota Vicentina Historical Way from Vale Seco to Cercal do Alentejo.

A 23 km (5½-6 hours) walk  along a stage of the Historical Way through the hills between Vale Seco and Cercal.  This stage is considered to be the most arrid of  the Rota Vicentina. After leaving Vale Seco, the trail passes the twin windmills at  Moinhos do Paneiro.

For much of it length the trail passes through rolling farmland and cork oak plantations. It skirts around the Campilhas reservoir and across the  dam, built in 1954.
