Rota Vicentina

Terug

De Rota Vicentina van de zuidwestelijke Alentejo en het natuurpark Costa Vicentina wikkelen zich rond de Atlantisch kustlijn van de Algarve en in de Alentejo. De kust, die wordt gekenmerkt door ruige rotsen, zeestapels, met zand gelaagde rotswanden veroorzaakt door eeuwenlange erosie, is perfect voor lange wandelingen.
De Rota Vicentina is een netwerk van wandelpaden met een totale lengte van 400 km, langs de mooiste en best bewaarde kustlijn van Zuid-Europa. Kom en maak kennis met het visserspad van de Rota Vicentina.
