This walk, NIS PR3, starts at the hydroelectric station at Velada on the River Nisa and you either download information or pick up a brochure or book of walks at the tourist office in Nisa. This was a lovely walk from 2017 but which never made it to the blogsite.
5.75 kms, c.2 hours
Flowers were everywhere, in all shades. Here are some yellow flowers:
There were also pink flowers, sometimes in considerable drifts!
There were even blue flowers, but I can’t find the name of this one either!
The walking is easy and relaxed, and peaceful, and shortly you reach the River Tagus.
There is a rather steep uphill on this walk, with more views of the River Tagus, extraordinary rock formations, and flowers. And of course with every ‘up’ comes a ‘down’!
And so back to the River Nisa, loop completed, and a return along the same path as the way out. This is a lovely walk – do try it.
Time for refreshments at the Pastelaria Jardim on the square in Nisa!
Looks like a lovely walk. I love the winged lavender and the first view over the River Tagus – gorgeous 🙂
Thank you for visiting – and yes, it is lovely. And there is no-one around – we have never met anyone on these walks in the Alentejo! I am just about to post another, on the border with Spain and also fabulous.

Delighted! It was an interesting walk and with a fair amount of exertion!
I don’t know this area, which always makes it interesting. I’ll include this one next week if you don’t have a preference? 🙂 🙂
