Does anyone know if there are any detailed maps of Portugal, like the British Ordnance Survey maps which show contours and geographical features? Ideal for walkers, ramblers, cyclists, nature lovers, etc.? Thanks!

Yes, I believe you can purchase them, they are known as Military Maps, try FNAC in Lisboa.

However, they are also available free of charge online (for browsing) and are quite detailed. See:

IGeoE-SIG - Instituto Geográfico do Exército

That website covers the whole of Portugal and you will see that they are quite like the OS maps of England.

Hi tzanth,

we purchased the Military maps for our surrounding area.
They are good, but not as good as the OS maps.

I use WikiLoc on my iphone or ipad to check out walks in my area.
You will find plenty of walks with photos & tips etc.

Glad you found it useful!

I get regular emails telling me when someone has posted a trail
in my area....

The military maps ate worth having, if only so you can look at them offline.

What area are you based in?

I may have some suggestions for your walks?

Hi there,

I'm based near Arganil and would love to hear about any walks in this region that you could suggest or links to any sites online.

Many thanks
Anton

Wow.
I'd not seen this site before either. Just downloaded the App to my phone. Brilliant. Very clear, fast and easy to use.
Thanks for posting it,

HI guys,

apologies for delay, but I have been in transit from overseas.
Back in UK now but jetlag a killer!

Friend of mine suggested a site called Gaia (app also) he uses it as I use wikiloc.

May be worth a look? I will trial it & let you know!

I am yet to get to Arganil Anton, maybe if you post some trails, I will come & explore!
