Trail Description

The famous Colares Ramisco grapes have an original and unique planting. This route takes you by these vineyards as well as some coastal villages. The starting point of this circular route is the Adega Regional de Colares, the Regional Cooperative Winery of Colares. The trail, though over 15 kms long, is not demanding, as it is mostly flat. It leaves Colares’ center through a pine forest, passing through traditional vineyards, idyllic villages, and hard, sandy cliffs. It also has an option to visit the 16th century round chapel of Janas. Near the starting point you can also find the artisanal beer brewery.

The coastal part of this trail (Azenhas do Mar – Aguda beach) coincides with the long distance foot path GR11. The yellow and red painted markings of this route were reinforced in the summer of 2020.

Our suggestions
  • Visit the Adega Regional de Colares, the oldest Portuguese cooperative winery
  • Visit Hop’sin artisanal craft beer pub in Colares
  • Take the historic tram to/from Sintra from the starting point of this path
  • Enjoy the views of the picturesque coastal village of Azenhas do Mar. (+38.840452, -9.460691)
