TransAlentejo Walking Festival is an event that takes place
over four weekends, covering the entire territory of Alentejo,
in a total of 47 municipalities and covering the 50 TransAlentejo
Pedestrian Trails that are infrastructured on the ground.
Given that there are 8 days available for the practice of
50 walking tours, there must be a wide range of walks that
take place simultaneously. Participants must therefore make
their choice in which they wish to participate.
The Walking Tours agenda is available in Global
Program with the name of the tour, the municipality where
it takes place, information about the meeting point, the entity
that will accompany you and the status of the appointment.
As they are confirmed the "schedule status" changes
to "Confirmed". If you sign up for a Walking Tour
that is not confirmed, you will be informed and you can choose
another one in the region.
