WALK TUESDAY 17th MARCH: POCO BARRETO CLOSED

Post by williew » Sat Feb 15, 2020 8:02 pm

This is a simple walk through the Silves Orange Groves but approaching it from another direction. It was last done by CVO Ramblers about 5 yrs ago and is well worth reprising.

It is about 2 hous and level(ish)in some lovely countryside, starting and ending at a nice cafe.

Driving from CVO to Silves, do NOT go over the bridge but continue up the hill with the Hotel Colina dos Mouros on your left.
After 3.7km, fork left where the road divides, in direction of Algoz.
After a further 2km ( 5.7km from the Silves bridge) you will be in Poco Barreto, at the railway station. Park by station on right at end of village, opposite Cafe Snack-bar Sustelo (may now be called Europa). Do NOT go over level crossing.

Usual meet at 10.00. Stout trainers or walking boots recommended.

The last time we did this walk we had a nice lunch at the restaurant in the station and I will establish beforehand if they still do it with a view to lunching there.

Names as usual for walk and lunch.
