Wild, rugged and unspoilt.
Lying right below the country’s heart, the Alentejo has served as Portugal’s breadbasket and seduces with its slow pace, a sense of modern times in half step. Really wild describes the Rota Vicentina, one of Europe’s newest hiking paths. The trail crosses 133 miles of Alentejo, from rough coastline to countryside where storks nest and endemic plants like camphor thyme flourish..
Rota Vicentina is an initiative of private entities and the region's public entities, financed by various agencies including the European Union.
In the Alentejo, for much of its distance the Rota Vicentina takes two different routes. The Historical Way passes through main towns and villages mostly along rural trails. The Fishermen's Trail runs along the coastline following trails used by local people to reach secluded beaches and popular sea angling spots.
