The Loule / Goldra area
Loule is the largest district within the Algarve. It is a rural and active market town producing many souvenir products made out of copper, leather, cane and wood. The town consists of 20,000 residents and due to the demands of tourism it has blossomed in size. The town’s landmark is the market hall and the weekly fair (on a Saturday) attracts people from all along the Algarve hoping to experience some culture. An important event is the annual Carnival held in February that is considered to be one of the best in Portugal. In the town there is a Museum that is devoted to the local industry of dried fruits and it is interesting to see how these products are prepared for the public.
The town has been built around the remains of a castle that dates back to the 12th Century. Within the dilapidated walls of castle is a museum with an explanation of the historical grandeur of the castle.
To the west of the town is a hilltop Church that is built on the site of a 16th Century chapel. This is the destination of an annual religious procession that requires some physical effort on the part of the bearers of the church's religious shrines.
There are many activities within the town including a leisure park, golf, health spas, tennis facilities, beautiful beaches and much much more.
