We walked around part of the Barragem with a large group of friends. Climbed to the local trig point for the views. Well marked tracks. Interesting area and lovely countryside.

Amazing views, it was a bit quiet we did see a few cyclists as there are tracks over all the hills for you to ride along. A great place for a picnic anytime of the year. Very peaceful.Worth a visit.
