Description

Rota Vicentina is a network of trails in Southwest Portugal, totaling 450 km, along the most beautiful and best preserved coastline of Southern Europe. Comprising the Historical Way, the Fishermen’s Trail, and several Circular Routes, this route proposes a unique experience of two worlds, between a living and authentic rural culture and a surprisingly wild coastline–fully within Southwest Alentejo and Vicentina Coast Natural Park.

The route is fully marked in both directions, and can be travelled independently and in total security, preferably from September through June. The sections are mere suggestions and can be shortened or extended according to your preferences or the location of your accommodation.
