The route departs the Historical Village of Sortelha from the Corro square and heads east, turning right onto the M542. It continues uphill towards Sabugal, bypassing Aldeia de Santo António. On the descent towards Sabugal the imposing castle emerges after the final curve, in the middle of a forest. The route joins the N233 and continues to the right, slightly uphill towards Santo Estevão. There may be some light or even heavy traffic on these kilometres of the N233. After a few kilometres the route starts to descend towards Santo Estevão, followed by Terreiro das Bruxas where it veers right towards Casteleiro and Santo Amaro, turning right again towards the north. Further on it passes the Escaleira Valley and, after passing through Azinheira it embarks on a tough climb of around 3 km to Sortelha. It enters the village to the right and continues upwards, following the wall on cobblestone streets and entering the Historical Village by the west gate, descending to Corro square on picturesque streets.
