Description of Itinerary

On this last day, Marmelete will be the starting point to reach the end of this Log Distance Path, up to Cabo de São Vicente (Cape Saint Vicent), in the municipality of Vila do Bispo.
See here the information about each Sector on this day:

Sector 12 - Marmelete to Bensafrim
Sector 13 - Bensafrim to Vila do Bispo
Sector 14 - Vila do Bispo to Cabo de São Vicente

Don't forget that if you take this route in the opposite direction to the recommended, this will be your first day. Therefore, you should measure the effort because in addition the extension, the constant climb from Bensafrim to Marmelete can make your muscles "complain".

 

USEFUL INFORMATION

The route is fully signposted, but it is advisable to use GPS and download the tracks we provide in the GR13 - Via Algarviana stages for MTB.

Attention: All the information is presented in the recommended direction, from Alcoutim to Cabo de São Vicente. If you decide to travel in the opposite direction, don't forget that you have to reverse the line with the cumulative elevation gain and loss values. The level of difficulty of the sectors can vary depending on the direction in which you make them.
