A walking enthusiast and keen on sketching for many years, Pedro Cabral was only too pleased to be asked by Sketch Tour Portugal to venture along the Alentejo and Algarve trails.
Along with Linda Toolsema a Dutch sketcher, he confirmed the excellent conditions of these Portuguese trails which showed off the beauty of the countryside, and appreciated the warm reception they met with in in the places they passed through.
"On the Fishermen’s Trail (Trilha dos Pescadores) the landscape slipped through the stunning cliffs to the sea that is always present, at least in its singing. It’s worth strolling down to the beaches or little harbours like Zambujeira, Azenha do Mar and Odeceixe. The two trails come together in Sagres, and they share the last section which crosses extensive properties with cornfields and pastures."
