Paiva Walkways by Trimetrica captured by Garrido

Paiva Walkways designed by Trimetrica and captured by Nelson Garrido embraces the Paiva river with an extension of 8km, providing a walking path with a breathtaking natural beauty, with picturesque landscapes, waterfalls and a variety of fauna and flora species.

Lisbon-based engineering firm Trimetrica was appointed by the local municipality to create the pedestrian route, which offers visitors a two and a half hour walk alongside rivers, forests, peaks, beaches and waterfalls.

More than a simple walk in contact with the nature, this is an unique experience deeply characterized by a dramatic landscape and an infrastructure that interferes as little as possible with the landscape. This is an unusual experience marked by winding stairs to the top of the hill with stunning sceneries, and a very narrow wooden bridge which spans across the river among cliffs and abundant vegetation. The walkway continues along the topography, with rest stops and strategic panoramic points to admire the view.
