CR24 – Sheep Route
These tours are for hiking lovers. Here you can enjoy real Royal Paths or Royal Roads, which are ancient land roads built in the second half of the 19th century by representatives of the Crown.
These were used for transportation of people and goods when the sea conditions were too rough to allow navigation. These roads put a term to the isolation in which a large portion of the rural population was submitted to.
Built by hand, they were maintained by the entire population of the island, who were called upon to contribute days of work, in a tax created for this purpose and called a “road wheel”.
In this circular walk, you will enjoy the fantastic biodiversity of the mountain, especially the Laurissilva forest, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO and part of the Natura 2000 Network. From Chão das Feiteiras to Ribeiro Frio, the descending trail follows the ancestral and magnificent Caminho Real 24.
