Walk to Vegetable Gardens and Water Wheels

SUPPLIER: Tavira Walking Tours


Walk in the Santa Catarina area, on gravel roads and along dry river beds. In the surrounding area, the orchards of fruit and dryland trees, the season’s typical activities and the local people all attract your attention. On the other hand, in a different part of the walk, the main features are the woods of pine trees and cork oaks with the characteristic red colour of the soil. Over eight kilometres, it will not be difficult to find birds such as long-tailed tits and cattle egrets, and enjoy views of the sea and the hills and local activities, such as agriculture, bee keeping and olive oil production.
