This is a day of discovery and history! Our route follows lesser travelled paths, giving you a discerning view of Portugal’s past and present. We travel to the town of Silves. Here there is time to visit the impressive cathedral and to wander the narrow streets(entrance fees not included). From here we continue our ascent into the Monchique Mountain. We will visit the charming little spa village of Caldas de Monchique, with springs of proven medicinal properties. Following the winding road, we reach the highest point in the Algarve – Fóia – standing at 902m above sea-level. Downhill then from Fóia, crossing the countryside and stopping in the small village of Marmelete where you have time to enjoy lunch in one of the local restaurants (included). After lunch we go straight to Costa Vicentina, to visit some magnificent beaches . Then it’s on to the ‘end of the world’ – Cape St. Vincent. Passage through Sagres, a typical fishing village and its sheltered fishing port.
