Meeting Point


Outside the entrance of Restaurant “Ponte Romana”.

GPS coordinates: (37.186108, -8.437531)

If you come by foot from Silves it is on the other side of the pedestrian bridge “Ponte Romana”.

If you come by car this is an easy place to park. From the highway or from Lagoa, you will descend a hill down to Silves. At the top of the hill, there is a small tunnel. You can turn left 750 meters after the tunnel, opposite a pet and garden shop, and  park your car.
