New Walking Trail Opens in the Algarve

August 9, 2012 By: Jena Tesse Fox

Good news for active vacationers in Portugal: The Rota Vicentina walking trail in the Algarve has officially opened to the public.

The trail runs along the rugged western coast of the Algarve to Sagres, with impressive views of the landscape and the ocean along the way.

The route runs from Santiago do Cacém in the Alentejo to Sagres in the Algarve, and is integrated into the  European GR11 route part of the GR footpath network of paths, tracks and trails which connect Sagres to St. Petersburg, traveling throughout Europe and integrating the Caminos de Santiago (The Way of St James).

Up to 60 percent of the land in the Algarve is protected, and the new route is part of a tourism initiative created by the Casas Brancas Association in partnership with the Almargem Association to promote areas of the Algarve beyond its popular southern coast.
