From Grazalema take the stunning mountain road (CA531) to Zahara. Super fast cross country sweepers to narrow mountain passes with incredible views
A twisting road with a rapid succession of corners,
physically very demanding if youre a sports rider.
You will start by placing the bike on the right trajectory for the first and second corners, on the third you will be a little off the line, by the fourth you wont care about trajectory or apexes and just cut the corner. Thats because some stretches have no straights between corners so its hard to keep a good line.
The tarmac is reasonable with the occasional small stones on the middle of the road. The camber is accentuated in some corners, but in the right way.
The road is not very wide and is mostly surrounded by trees with some places where you can stop for a view of the landscape high on the Serra do Caldeirão. Please keep a sensible speed while crossing the villages on the route.
This road is popular with Portugal local bikers and has some spectacular viewpoints. It passes through a ski resort area, a shock for Portugal, after rising from the town to a flattish mountain top at 2000 metres. There is an interesting diversion to the right, signposted Manteigas or Valley of the Glacier,which after a mile or so gets to the head of a perfectly formed Glacier Valley.Back on the main route there are some good bends and you can finnish in the village of Seia where you can find a number of good restaurants.
The best Road for motorcycle in Portugal!
