The Connections to the Via Algarviana are linear trails that take you to the main route of Via Algarviana or where you can choose to end your adventure on the Via Algarviana and reach a point of access to public transport. » Discover the 7 Connections
Take the opportunity to travel by train, as 5 of the available Connections start at train stations, considering you and the environment, as a way to reduce your footprint. Soon, there will be presented 2 new Connections, so you may enjoy this territory more and more: Connection 8 (from Vaqueiros to Martim Longo) and Connection 9 (from Parchal to Silves).
From the coast to the heart of the mountains, these trails will surprise you with the secrets they contain.
