OFF THE BEATEN TRACK ALGARVE

The Algarve is much more than just a sun and sea tourist destination. The Algarve hides a cultural heritage and historical legacy of great relevance.

THE SURROUNDINGS

The southernmost region in Portugal was occupied by various peoples and cultures, of note being the Romans and finally the Moors. There are several churches, castles and forts that inspire the most popular tourist region in Portugal.

The climate is also one of the mildest in the country, with the eastern Algarve registering the highest average temperature in the country -18 º C. The mild winters and hot summers delight visitors from colder countries that find a glimmer of light in this climate.

The cuisine is another legacy of great importance in this region, from the coastal fish dishes to the more elaborate meat dishes from the interior, ending in traditional desserts such as almond, carob of fig cakes or the famous Dom Rodrigo.

The Coastal landscapes are stunningly beautiful, one of the highlights being the beautiful Ria Formosa, which is one of the most important wetland areas in the country and which has become a choice location for bird watching due to its unique environmental characteristics, registering the highest number of birds observed in Portugal. Beyond the area of the Algarve coastline, the interior Algarve breathes peace and tranquillity. From Monchique or Caldeirão mountains, you can enjoy the sights of fig, carob, olive and legendary almond trees, painting the inland areas of the region white. We leave you with an invitation to discover an authentic Algarve, filled with a friendly cultural influence.
