The natural landscapes adorned by granitic elements and by the labyrinthic and flowery gardens of the municipalities of Crato, Alter do Chão and Portalegre join together in the harmonious painting in which the challenging orienteering courses of Portugal “O” Meeting 2017, organized by Grupo Desportivo dos Quatro Caminhos, will take place. To all the participating athletes, national and foreign, I wish the best sporting success and an unforgettable social and human experience, in these lands of sun, history, memory, material and immaterial culture.
A big welcome to all.
Marco Alpande Póvoa
President of the Portuguese Orienteering Federation
