Southwest Portugal

38 Pins48 Followers
I spent five days hiking the Fishermen’s Trail, a 180km (110 miles) track that follows Portugal’s southwestern Atlantic coastline from Porto Covo to Cape St. Vincent, the end of the known world in the 15th century, before Europeans began their maritime expansion. Along the way, the trail goes by some of Portugal’s most stunning coastal towns, including Vila Nova de Milfontes, Almograve, Zambujeira do Mar, Odeceixe, Aljezur, Carrapateira and Sagres.
