Sector 1 Alcoutim – Balurcos

The Via Algarviana starts at Alcoutim, at the quay. It crosses the village and heads north. Initially the track goes along the Guadiana river, an even, low altitude path, the hikers can contemplate the valley’s natural beauty. The landscape is dominated by dryfruit orchards (almond trees, figs, or olive trees), many of which are still in use. As you continue along the main track, it soon begins to bend away from the river, heading west to Corte Pereiras.
