Full description

This is the perfect tour for you discover more about the history and culture of the Algarve region and to enjoy the wonderful landscape that this region has to offer.

Let's start in Silves town, the old Moorish capital of Algarve and an attractive town of jumbling orange rooftops scattered above the banks of the Rio Arade. Silves was in the hands of the Moors for almost 500 years, and the lasting monument from this period is its castle. Silves Castle is at the top of a hill which is a well-preserved piece of architecture and ancient history that provides you a stunning view over the city.

Next, you cannot miss the Silves Cathedral, is a mainly Gothic building and it is seen as the finest religious monument from this era in the south of Portugal. The perfect place to find some peace.

Let's proceed with our tour to Caldas de Monchique, a thermal village known for its waters of mineral-rich rejuvenating properties! Go up the Monchique Mountain to arrive in the highest point of Algarve - Fóia - where you have a great view over the region! There are many other amazing mountains in Portugal but this is a very special one because of the high altitude near the sea.
