Rota Vicentina - the fisherman's trail

Rota Vicentina - the fisherman's trail

For a long time the Vicentina Natural Park is well known amongst insiders for its wild beauty, biological diversity and natural value. Since the recent implementation of the Rota Vicentina, a long distance walking route through large parts of the natural park, many more people are getting impressed by the charming south western coast of Portugal. With reason it was elected one of 7 Portuguese natural wonders.
