Found this under a Portuguese motorway

No point being secret-spotty about this, as it's not somewhere anyone's very likely to go to anyway. In Mid-Portugal is a smallish town called Guarda. In Guarda there's a big playground down by the railway station. One of the accesses to the playground has this tunnel/ Surface is a little choppy just before the transition, but rideable with big (or soft) wheels. There's a big hill leading into the transition, so all the spped you could ever need. Needs a good brush out, and is better skated as a ditch than a ramp. Couldn't get the hang of it very well myself, but a fine spot for someone with better transition skills.

According to the grafitti, someone managed to get up to 2 metres 10 on the wall, which is over vert, but it doesn't say what they were riding. There's a BMX circuit in the playground, so probably a bike.

You're asking the wrong guy I'm afraid. I only found this place because I happened to be in the town, and my kids were at the playground. Complete accident.
