1. Monchique Mountains

The Monchique Mountains are the highest point of the Algarve. From here you have a breath taking view of the coast and the inland.
On the way, numerous cork oaks can be seen, which are of great economic importance for this region.

2. Silves

Silves is the oldest city in the Algarve. Shoppers can buy the famous cork products of the region on their way through the city. Many beautiful old buildings can be discovered.
A visit to the castle grounds is definitely worth it.

3. Faro

The capital of the region is Faro.
A city stroll through small streets and along the harbour brings out the atmosphere of that small town. We particularly liked the small houses, lovingly decorated with ceramic tiles.


4. The steep coast

The steep coast of the Algarve is simply unique. Rugged rocks protrude from the sea, and, in the right light, the coastline often looks unreal, and sometimes almost mystical.
Very inviting for walks.
