Quinta da Barrosinha
In the municipality of Batalha, in the parish of Reguengo do Fétal, one of the lesser-known trails in central Portugal is hidden, the charming trails of Monte da Barrosinha.
Over approximately four kilometers, they reveal the charms of the green landscape of the mountain. Along the way, we will go back a few decades to observe the historic panel made of tiles, which advertised the old American airline Pan am, a great opportunity to take pictures and experience a moment of nostalgia.
Following and going up, you should take advantage of the view that the barrosinha swing provides, as it is a great place for a scenic setting in which it is possible to enjoy a shared experience while watching a possible sunset and seeing the sea on clear days it has everything you need for a day well spent surrounded by nature and landscape.
The route is circular and requires some physical effort and combined with its short extension, makes the trails a perfect walk for all the family and friends. It takes no more than two hours to go through them.
