Between Loures and Vila Franca de Xira, a walk of 28 km can be covered in around 7 hours.

This second day of the route is set against the incomparable beauty of the Tagus estuary landscape, where the water is dotted with mouchões or islets and the tributaries and riverbanks create a jagged river bank. The riverside landscape is mostly made up of tilled floodplains and small villages, where the natural ecosystem of the varied traditional fauna and flora is maintained. The hillsides give the landscape a natural frame, dotted with centuries-old olive trees, old rural villas, farms, churches, chapels and fountains.  This journey features both exclusively pedestrian and mixed sections.
