Santiago do Cacém / Porto Covo - Cabo de São Vicente, 350 km excluding extra circuits, 14 days

This trail consists of two trails that intertwine:

Most people start North and walk South, giving them the epic feeling of reaching Cabo de São Vicente pointing far into the Atlantic, where giant waves hit the steep cliffs and where exhausted migratory birds from Africa land on their last wings.

You have two options: either start along the coast in Porto Covo, the Fishermen’s Trail; or start inland in Santiago do Cacém, the Historical Way. In Odeceixe, the Historical Way and the Fishermen’s Trail meet. From this point onwards the Fishermen’s Trail follows the itinerary of the Historical Way but for five circular sections that divert you from the Historical Way to the coastline.

Refer to the description of these trails elsewhere on Traildino.

  • Positive De kust is werkelijk prachtig, vooral in de lente als de bloesems het zand doen opkleuren. De oceaan is steeds in de buurt. De dorpen zijn allemaal zeer verschillend en zeer aantrekkelijk. Portugal is ook niet duur.
  • Negative Niets.
