About

In this fantastic and exclusive tour, we take you to discover our history, our culture and also the most beautiful landscapes that the Algarve has to offer. Our route will pass through lesser-known locations, to provide you with a glimpse into Portugal's past and present.

Our first destination will be the city of Silves, which in Arab times was the capital of the Algarve. Here we visit the imposing Castle, from where we can marvel at the magnificent landscape that can be seen from there. The reddish glow of Silves stoneware present on the walls of the Castle and the Cathedral, as well as throughout the city, when exposed to the sun transports us to other times! You will also have time to visit the magnificent Cathedral and stroll through the medieval streets next to the Castle. (tickets not included)

From here we continue on to the Serra de Monchique, where you can observe the luxuriant beauty of its vegetation, which includes cork oaks, eucalyptus, arbutus and mimosas. We will visit the small and charming spa resort of Caldas de Monchique, with sources of proven medicinal properties. The surrounding park is beautiful and well worth a short walk. We continue along the winding road that will take us to the highest point in the Algarve, Fóia, which is 902m above sea level. From here the view over the Algarve and Alentejo is magnificent and the air is incredibly pure!

We then descend, crossing the countryside towards the village of Marmelete, where you will have the opportunity to taste, in a restaurant in this area, a delicious lunch consisting of the typical dishes of the region (included).

After lunch we head to the Costa Vicentina, where we will visit some of its fantastic beaches and where there will still be time to capture the beauty of this protected coast and relax with the wonderful view!

Then we head to the “end of the world” - Cape St. Vincent, the most southwestern point in Europe, where you can feel the “force of the elements”! Breathe in the invigorating Atlantic air and marvel at the vastness of the landscape! The lighthouse that rises in this place defies the elements and is one of the most important in Europe due to its strategic position.

Finally, we also pass by the small fishing village of Sagres and its sheltered fishing port.

Don't miss this day of discovery!
