Via Romana, The Roman Road, in Porto de Mós

The Roman Road to Sierra Alqueidão is located in the parish of Alqueidão of Serra and was created to facilitate the sale of iron mined in Vieiros in Figueirinha and Zambujal, and leads to Tomar, the Bouceiros.

On site remains today the route of the Roman road of Carreirancha. This was the path that led Nuno Alvares Pereira to Military Camp on the eve of the Battle of Aljubarrota on 14 August 1385. The road is 100 meters long and four meters at its widest point, and was built between centuries BC and AD.
