Walk 20 Nov 2018 : Silves Farmhouse. CLOSED

Post by Geoff » Tue Oct 30, 2018 11:11 am

Walk is now closed as we have enough people.

An invigorating walk through the backhills of Silves , with quite a lot of ups and downs, some quite steep, but with some lovely views. Please note the walk is on a Tuesday as the restaurant is now closed on a monday.

Degree of Difficulty ( scale 1:5 ) : 3 Energetic

Start:10.00 am

Directions : Drive to Silves, go over bridge and turn left on N124. After about 1km, you will pass the Continente suprmarket on the right hand side. Drive another 400m and turn right, almost doubling back on yourself.
Drive straight on for about 800 m ( going past the prison, the big white block on the left with barbed wire) and park in the Jardim do Largo da Republico, or nearby.
There are 3 coffee shops nearby, Cafe Jardin is where we will meet....if shut, at Snackbar Pastelario Tio.

GPS : 37.189676N, 8.445618W

Usual caveats: all walks are at your own risk, and we do not walk if it is pouring with rain.....I will endevour to put any cancellation note on this site by 0830 on the day of the walk.

Walking boots/stout trainers , walking pole(s), hats and water recommended. No charge, of course.


Please indicate below if you can come as we will limit numbers to 20. Please also state if you want lunch.

Optional lunch at Mira Rio, a short drive away for 10€......which includes lunch (7.5€, tip and balance to charity, see new lunch price policy at viewtopic.php?f=39&t=27800
