This path begins in Santiago do Cacem, a city with a strong connection to the pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostela. Since the Middle Ages, visitors have passed through here coming from the Promontorium Sacrum. Now a historic journey is revived through Rota Vicentina. This is a portion of the Rota Vicentina, a multi day trip that can be hiked via a variety of routes. Here is a compiled list of the sections: https://www.alltrails.com/lists/rota-vicentina.

First to Review

I would not recommend this walk. Views are of Sines, a horrible industrial complex, and a lot of the Cork oaks, are dead, or dying. There are definitely more beautiful walks, further South.
