A land of sunshine and sea, bordered by miles of golden sands and gently touched by the clear blue waters of the Atlantic. This privileged region in the south of Portugal has some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe.

Silves was considered to be the most beautiful place by the Moors and you can see the remains of the Fort and an Archeological Museum.. From the remotest past, it has been charcterised by great interaction between different peoples and cultures and these influences can be seen in the architecture of its houses and monuments. Places of interest in the Algarve include, Silves and the Monchique mountains and Spa, Tavira and the Ria Formosa wildlife reserve to the East , and Lagos and Portimao to the West.
