CH3 Sao Luis to Cercal

Stage CH3 of the Rota Vicentina Historical Way from São Luis to Cercal do Alentejo.

A 21 km (6½-7 hours) walk  along a stage of the Historical Way through the hills between São Luís and Cercal, starting at the church of São  Luís. At the top of Serra do Penedo, you'll get a great view over the plains, the Mira River and the village of Vila Nova de Milfontes.

Heading north, the trail will lead to an amazing 17m waterfall, Rocha de Água d'Alte, the highest in southern Portugal before continuing  past the abandoned Rosalgar mines, now home to several colonies of bats, and the chapel of Fonte Santa de Cima before descending into Cercal do Alentejo.
