British newspaper "The Guardian" highlights Rota Vicentina as one of the best walking destinations in Europe.

The complete Rota Vicentina comprises 24 circular day hikes and two 13-stage trails: the 141-mile coastal Fishermen鈥檚 Trail and the 163-mile * Historical Way, which heads into the mountains and forests. The walking is generally easy and well waymarked. The biggest challenge is choosing which section of which route to do.

* Small correction: currently the Fishermen’s Trail comprises 13 stages, with a total of 226.5 km to walk along the Southern of Portugal.
