My name is David Sobral, I’m from Santiago do Cacém and I’m very proud of having been born and to live in this locality.
My connection to Rota Vicentina began with a group of 4 friends who decided to walk the Historical Way and also the Fishermen’s Trail. I was fascinated by all the hidden natural beauty that can only be glimpsed through this beautiful route. Later I enrolled in some volunteer programs and was proposed to be the godfather of Santiago do Cacém – Vale Seco section. I did not hesitate to accept it and, from this day, I’m proud to be part of this family.
