Full description
Take a lovely nature walk almost entirely downhill from the village of Prazeres to the seashore at Paúl do Mar. Make your descent along the cliff face along terraced farm plots held in place by stone walls which were formerly used for growing grain crops, but with the decline of agriculture today, are mostly abandoned. Take in the views between Assomadouro at Prazeres and the dock at Paúl. Learn all about why this trail belongs to historical heritage and how its small stone steps bear witness to the isolation of past generations and to the ingenious and difficult trails built by the locals to overcome this isolation.
