Portela de Vila Verde





The Road

Pass straight through Daporta and at the first 4-way intersection (after passing through town) turn left onto a dirt road. The junction can be identified by the utility building with a blue door on your left. The path turns back on itself and climbs uphill before entering a cork plantation which transitions into a eucalyptus forest.

The forest is well marked and pleasant walking. It is about 2.6km before you arrive at the first large intersection with the main road. At this point, you are technically in Tojal, but there are no houses. Up the road on your right is a gas station.

Cross through this intersection and carry on straight in the direction of Alvaiázere (centro). You will be on a paved road all the way to Cortiça (3.2km), passing olive groves along the way.

Tojal Douro Restaurant open
Opposite the gas station. Great menu of the day €10. Run by a lovely Belgium women. Well worth the extra 5 minutes.

Camino de Sant…

There is a large restaurant and cafe opposite the service station. We found the service station on Google maps but not the cafe

Camino de Sant…

On the forest/eucalyptus and cork track, we found a four road junction with dug out signs and yellow arrow nailed to tree, all pointing left. However, we followed the electronic map through the middle track/road. It was good all the way. The other would probably also get you to the same point but along the highway.
