Cities and Towns of Greater Porto
The sixth stage of the Route begins in Vairão, at the Monastery of the Holy Saviour and ends in Porto by the Cathedral. The terrain is flat, the distance covered 25, 5 km and the maximum altitude 116 m. Although the gradient does not present any major issues, this stage is essentially an urban walk, with a medium level of difficulty, whereby it is recommended to be attentive at all times, above all when crossing busy roads.
Over the course of the day you will make your way through the Municipalities of the Porto Metropolitan Region, such as Vila do Conde, Maia, Matosinhos and Porto. The landscape is varied, with rural and urban areas. As you advance southwards the population density increases and urban development becomes more noted. Throughout this stage logistical support is available for making short pauses.
