The distance between Vila Franca de Xira and Azambuja is around 19 km and can be covered in approximately 4 hours and 30 minutes. 

The track is framed to the east by the characteristic landscape of the Lezíria do Tejo furrowed by creeks and large valleys of ashes and reeds. To the west lie mountains with pine trees and cork oaks. 

Walkers are enveloped in nature and landscape throughout this stage. The track also travels through part of Vala do Carregado and Vala Real da Azambuja, noteworthy for their proximity to the water. The historic urban landscape also invites contemplation, especially the areas around the old farms and the cultural heritage of villages and towns such as Vila Nova da Rainha and Azambuja, which feature many interesting churches and cultural facilities.
