You do not have to take a tent and sleeping bag with you as there are some good places to stay along the old pilgrims’ way. However, there is only a limited range of small hotels and legal private accommodation available.

Tourism in the style of the Camino de Santiago stands no chance in the interior of Portugal, hiking for nature-lovers is a better bet. There are some good hotels in the Algarve hinterland along the Via Algarviana: in the villages of Alcoutim, Alte, Caldas de Monchique and Vila do Bispo.

Unfortunately, there are no campsites along the whole route. People who want to sleep in their tents nonetheless need to know that wild camping is not permitted in Portugal – putting up a tent needs the permission of the owner of the property.
