Francisco de Sousa & Leonor Pires
Caretakers since 2020

Leonor and Francisco are young Architects, they started collaborating with Rota Vicentina as volunteers in the LIFE Volunteer Escapes project in 2019, today they are caretakers of the Circular Route From Bordeira to the Sea. We want to thank them for the work they do on that trail!

My history at Rota Vicentina started as a volunteer in the LIFE Volunteer Escapes project, in 2019, and since then I fell in love with this region and this team. The diversity of landscapes and the richness of flora and fauna that these trails cover is impressive, especially for a young Landscape Architect. This trail is a perfect image of what this region can offer and I hope I can contribute, as a godfather, to keep all its biodiversity and charm.

I am a Landscape Architect and rediscovered the beauty of these landscapes through the Rota Vicentina, as a volunteer for the LIFE Volunteer Escapes project, in the area of Nature Conservation. I was completely embraced by Rota Vicentina, the Team and the cause and values they carry with them. Caretaking this beautiful path is just one of the many contributions I want to make to this project.

The UBUNTU meeting

The term, of South African origin, embodies the essence of community and cooperation, as suggested by its literal translation: "I am because we are".
