The area is particularly renowned for its via ferrata, cabled routes predating the Great War which give superb access to some of the World’s most striking summits. The metal wires, interspersed with breathtaking ladders and unlikely suspension bridges, provide aerial assault courses which combine the thrill of an ascent on rock with the security of a protected mountain scramble.
This guide covers everything you need for a climbing trip regardless of ability, whether it be sport, trad, via ferrata or a combination of all three. It features all the major areas and is the only guidebook available to have such comprehensive coverage.

For many years the Algarve has not been considered as a 'real' walking destination. That opinion is rapidly changing.

Here the varied geology helps produce a rich range of scenery from volcanic hills to dramatic limestone escarpments.
