Signs and Marks

placa1

The Grand Route of the Côa Valley is signed and marked according to the standarts of the Federação de Campismo e Montanhismo de Portugal.

placas4Signs are marked with white and red and you can find them painted on natural elements, such as rocks, or on signal posts.


You will also find information boards describing relevant features of the landscape, as well as signs pointing to the complementary trails to visit villages and other interesting places. These trails are only marked in their beginning and ending points, where you can see their total distance. Therefore, you will not find any more signs along their length.

In some stages of the Grand Route (GR) there is an overlap with other small routes, specially at Serra da Malcata. GR goes along with the Small Route of Sabugal and you can easily distinguish it because on small routes yellow is used instead of white. Often, you can also find marks for both routes (the first image below).

There is also some points where Grand Route of the Côa Valley (GRCV) crosses the Grand Route of the Historical Villages (GR 22), but they are marked with signal posts.

Besides all marks and signal posts, you should always take a map with you (that you can find on the stages tab or in your GPS/mobile phone (download here).
