Spring Area – Loulé
round| length: 9 km | duration: 3 h
The circular route takes us to the area of Loulé, known for its Gypsy and Farmers’ Market on Saturdays. Here we have the opportunity to purchase typical products for a picnic. The loop – Loulé brings us to Fonte Benémola. It is a protected area under conservation. It is a diverse circular walk in the green Barrocal, through deserted cultural landscapes and with expansive views. We walk through small, typical villages and experience a fantastic view of the hills and mountains as far as Monchique. The shady way back leads directly to the spring of Fonte Benémola. Ancient olive and carob trees line our path and numerous Orchis and Ophrysarten decorate the landscape, especially in spring. A picnic area right on the small river invites you to take a break.
