How Rota Vicentina changed the region

In more than 10 years of existence, Rota Vicentina has been able to become a defining characteristic of the Southwest of Portugal.

Most visitors start by planning their trip through our website, which already has more than one million annual visits. The website is an essential factor for the economic sustainability of the project, but also for promoting the ongoing message of sustainability and responsible tourism.

On average, Rota Vicentina receives 24000 hikers a year, coming mainly from Europe outside the high season, especially during the autumn and spring. With these visits, the region benefited in 2017 from an added value of 15 million euros, with 8 million remaining in the local economy. Rota Vicentina is also responsible for the creation of around 1600 jobs in the region.

The environmental, social and economic impact of Rota Vicentina in the region has been monitored and documented in great detail. Check the results here.
