This is the link to the web site for the long distance foot path which crosses the Algarve from the Spanish frontier over to the Nature Park of the Costa San Vincentino.  There are maps, accommodation and refreshment info and photos. The route uses tarmac roads as little as possible and passes through some of the most unspoilt and lovely scenery in south west Europe.
