Rota Vicentina walking trail voted Best of Europe

Portugal’s southwest Rota Vicentina walking trail has won a golden spot among the ‘Leading Quality Trails – Best of Europe’ after receiving a seal of approval from the European Ramblers Association (ERA).

The 400km trail, which stretches from Santiago do Cacém in the Alentejo to the Algarve’s Cape St. Vincent in Sagres, had to undergo some “technical changes” to receive the certification but ultimately passed ERA’s test with flying colours.

“This is a very demanding certification process that evaluates several factors, including the quality and nature of the trails, the beauty of the landscape, safety, access, information provided to walkers and the quality of the route’s signals, among many others,” said the association that manages the trail.

Hopes are that the new quality seal will attract even more visitors.
