About the Experience
Pick-up: Only included for departures out of Quarteira/Praia da Luz.
During this full-day visit, you’ll learn more about the region where the influence of the Moors and the Arab peoples can still be seen The Algarve is Portugal’s most international region. It is the destination of choice for people from all over the globe, and that is why we often hear a little of every language spoken in the streets of the region. People flock to this corner of the world for various reasons: from the warm climate to the stunning - and famous - coastline, and the unique Mediterranean cuisine.
The trip includes a visit to Silves Castle, with its Islamic military architecture and one of the most well-preserved castles in the country, which doubles as a viewpoint thanks to its location at the top of a large hill. Get ready for a breathtaking view. We then continue to Foia, nestled in the Monchique Mountain. Foia is the Algarve’s highest point, and you will certainly be impressed by the stunning panoramic views.
In the charming city of Lagos, historically linked to the Portuguese Discoveries, you will be able to visit Saint Anthony’s Church and the Slave Market, from the 14th Century. We will also visit Santa Luzia, a small picturesque village located very close to Tavira, which specializes in catching octopus, and the cosmopolitan city of Faro - the capital of the Algarve.
