Story by Henrique Alves from Porto, Portugal, submitted on 14/10/2016
Senhora da Graça, portuguese for Our Lady of Grace, is a magnificient climb. It may not seem outrageously steep or long, but for most of the part of the way you can see the top of the mountain, a perfect Flour Peak, Monte Farinha in portuguese, another name for the montain, and it demoralizes and scares you. The peak, punctuated with a sanctuary, seems almost in the vertical of you, wherever you are on the road up. Some parts are steep, very steep, and you get dizzy with the view, the landscape encompasses river valleys less than 100m high and massive mountains 1400m high. Lots of fun on the way down, with lots of horseheel corners. If you want a short warming up before the climb leave from the town of Amarante, 30km away, along the cycleway. If you want a more "hilly" and long way leave from Amarante but this time east, and climb Marão (1034m, 28km, 3%). 125km round trip. Have fun!
