Route nº14 - Lagoa

Level 1

Famed for its wine-growing traditions, the municipality of Lagoa invites you to a ride that starts on flat terrain towards Fontes da Matosa, where you can admire the splendid golf courses of the Amendoeira Golf Resort.

An entertaining up-and-downhill stretch then takes you to Alcantarilha, a small town that serves as a connecting point between the charms of the rural interior and the extensive Algarve coast. Take a few moments to rest on the seafront avenue in Armação de Pêra, in preparation for a new challenge: the steady uphill ride to the village of Porches and a visit to the emblematic beaches of Benagil and Carvoeiro.

Steep slopes await on the stages preceding the return to the countryside and during the crossing of the Gramacho golf course.

From Estombar, head north and enjoy the marvellous view over the River Arade until you arrive back in Lagoa.
