Hi, im back, here some pics of a trip to some of the "Portugal históric vIllages" hope you like it.

Good friends, so here is the story of our trip Aces' Historic Villages of Portugal "are total 12 villages, but our plans were going to visit only 8 of them, as arranged the meeting point would be awaiting by our comrades coming from the "south" eheheh, ace 9am on the dot there I was on the scene and already our friends Kimbusa (Jorge) and Khamsim (peter) were keeping place, although Peter could not follow us there was as promised to pay for the coffee to "adventurers"

However arrived missing comrades, Alfredo and Carlos (vermallon), do not tell anyone but it is said that around ... Alfredo has a pact with the man who rules the weather, but thankfully for us because the day was gorgeous and sunny, perfect for what was coming, hugs, we left for breakfast promised by Pedro.

Coffee taken, hugs and wishes for a good trip and there we left for our trip, we started by snaking along the Douro to Entre-os-Rios, we stopped there for a cigarette and two of lyrics and of course take a picture of the practice with the Angel as if to plead for protection that still came.

We had to hereinafter as the river Paiva company with their furious fast to our right and the imposing mountains of the Montemuro Alfredo knows so well to the left, we always roads that snaked along the mountain through beautiful villages until Alvarenga (land the steaks), from here Alfredo took the reins and showed us one of the finest ways to cross the Sierra.

However we descend to the east side of the Sierra and picked up the road from the Cinfães Castro Daire.

There we climbed the beautiful journey that gives us this road leaving behind a landscape of predominantly typical slopes of the Douro and advancing to a typical mountain landscape stripped and imposing.

However some of the fellows had to give drink to horses ....

Deposits and go full forward we have long way to go, order from here was to find a picnic to eat any snack that already had the stomachs to protest ... but before you get there Piaggio decided to stop in the mud on a path of gravel, but nothing that aid does not solve .

It was a meal quickly and effectively, because we still have much to walk, then did a shot of over 100km and only stopped in Trancoso.
In Trancoso, after a coffee and see that despite the trip being run by the best were just taking longer than previously thought in the planning, and we would have to follow to direct belmonte not pass in Linhares da Beira and Sortelha, and well as day only has 24 hours would have to be, so we made one more shot directly and did about 70 km towards Belmonte always with the Serra da Estrela in the background ....

Bem Identificados…..

Belmonte back and still had to do some 70km to Idanha-a-Nova and Carlos Alfredo I were going to the campsite near the dam where we would spend the night, when we arrived it was dark, it was time to assemble the shelter and make dinner ... after a few hours we had the visit of kimbusa who came from the village to spend a little time with the rest of our community, we were an hour or two to tell and hear stories tell of life ...
Morning was 8am and we were lifting irons ....

Would follow from here to Idanha-a-Velha, a historic village is completely walled, and that beauty was entered, advise to visit ...

We leave Idanha-a-Velha back with impressive destination will Monsanto, known for being the most Portuguese village in Portugal ...

Monsanto in the sky began to bless travelers, and would be so for a long time, we have next to no visibilty due to heavy rains, but the destination was still Piodão now we come to the city where Fundão still raining heavily here and the our comrade Kimbusa decided to end the trip and head home because the roads were not the best conditions and the tires fitted to his Piaggio Fly were not best suited to deal with so much water on the road, had previously caught a mighty scare and the vows we made good trip and went just 3 for Piodão, about 10/15 minutes of our comrade decided to head home the weather abated,, and follow directions taken to Piodão, and I tell you now that the road is dazzling paintings seem imagined by the gods, valleys of sight, touch the peaks in clouds, villages as they lost in the middle of nowhere, just amazing.

From Piodão we decided by the most direct route to home, and which was not surprising that when we thought that we would no longer have anything more interesting, entered the National road 230 in Vide and did about 25km up and I can safely say that is in my personal Top 5 of the most amazing roads to make in a motorcycle , from here was to follow up home with a total of 763km made ​​with the best possible company was a memorable trip for me, hope you like it.
