The Algarve is Portugal's warm, southern, ocean-beach paradise.

The Algarve is a great place to visit at any time of year. It's main attraction is the 270 kilometers of rugged and beautiful coastline - dotted with delightful beaches, pretty coves, mysterious grottos, rugged headlands, and picturesque villages.

But those who venture inland in the Algarve will also find a pretty countryside of mountain slopes forested with cork oak, eucalyptus, mimosa, and chestnut trees - and remote villages in the Serra de Monchique, and the Serra Do Caldeirao. A drive up to the town of Monchique will provide you with an amazing view back down to the whole Algarve coast!

Faro is the capital of the Algarve. It is a thriving city with an international airport and mcuh to see and do for the visitor.

Loule has a wonderful market. Silves is the old original capital. Those - along with the main coastal towns of Lagos, Portimao, Albufeira, and Tavira - are all towns worth a visit as you explore the area.

The Algarve was controlled by the Moors for over 500 years, and much there still today shows the influence from that era; it's white-washed villages, towns with their maze of twisting narrow streets, centuries old fortresses, the cuisine - and all of it adds a fascinating 'flavor' to this southern paradise.

There are 4 of Portugal's Pousadas in this beautiful region.
