The magazine advises this Portuguese trail for travelers who, besides enjoying time alone, enjoy the virgin nature little influenced by the man. This trail, which crosses a good part of the Vincentina coast, is integrated in the Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo.
According to the publication, this trail is more pleasant if run between September and November or between March and May. The Condé Nast also advises that the walks last an average of one to two weeks, so that the travelers can appreciate the native flora and fauna, the hidden corners of the tracks, visit the almost unknown beaches that are there, enjoy a unique landscape and practically in its pure state.
