Dia 2 Route Vila do Bispo - St. Vincent Cape 8,7 miles.

Breakfast and departure to the starting point of the hiking tour.

We begin the march through lush valleys towards a place where ancient people lit coastal fires to warn boats of rocks and rough seas.

We continue southward, along trails infused with a salty breeze, until we reach a promontory that stands out on the coast. We'll stop at this spot for a delicious snack and to admire the surrounding views.

After a well-deserved rest, we walk "towards the cape," amidst colorful flowering shrubs that paint the slopes. Along the way, we encounter a fortress that once guarded the coast against fearsome corsairs and pirates. We approach the end of the European continent, enjoying beautiful views of the impressive Cape St. Vincent and Sagres Point.

Finally, we arrive at the ancient convent-fortress of St. Vincent, which is also the location of the southernmost lighthouse on the European continent.

Return to the hotel and free time.

We continue towards Monte Clérigo Beach along paths lined with flowers and undergrowth that overlook the sea. Our senses will be awakened by intense maritime smells and the echo of seagulls that will guide us into vast horizons. The activity ends at 3:30/4pm. This tour will certainly be missed.
