WALKING TRAILS IN THE ALGARVE GET SUPPORT FROM ALCOUTIM

Via Algarviana walking trail will receive 3500 euros from the Municipality of Alcoutim. This amount is destined to assist in preservation and management.

Created in 2006, the Via Algarviana is a grid of paths linking the East to the West of the Algarve, from Alcoutim to Cape São Vicente. These trails go almost exclusively through the countryside.

These paths are an important part of the region’s strategy to appeal to a different type of tourism and strengthen the numbers of visitors during wintertime.

The trail is preserved by environmental association ALMARGEM with support from the all the councils of the Algarve.

You can find more information on the trails in English visiting Via Algarviana’s website.
