What you can expect

Discover the picturesque southern region of Portugal and its ancient cities full of cultural heritage. Explore mountainous villages dotted with white houses and cobbled streets, and admire the view of flower-covered hillsides from the highest point in the Algarve.

The charming town of Silves welcomes visitors with a fruity scent of orange and lemon trees. The history of this place is displayed in every monument, church and ruin.

Listen to your guide describe the town's Moorish legacy as you pass by the Castle of Silves, one of the best-preserved castles in the Algarve. Admire the towers and the historic alcáçova, the lord's residency in the city. See one of the few remaining gothic monuments at the Silves Cathedral and gaze at the impressive 10-foot-high (3-m) limestone cross.

Leaving Silves behind, your next stop is the breathtaking Fóia at Monchique mountains, the Algarve's highest point. This is the perfect opportunity to snap a memorable picture of the impressive landscape displayed in front of you.

The last stop is the village of Monchique, located on the Algarve's mountainous side. Stroll the charming cobbled streets and admire the unique style of the houses in this area—a big contrast to the coastal style, with white walls and colourful windows and doors, and the saia (skirt chimney)—their most characteristic feature.
