HISTORICAL Algarve (Full Day Tours)
The Algarve isn’t just about golden sandy beaches and golf courses. This region of Portugal is rich in history and is truly a magical place to discover. Our historical guided tours of the Algarve offer a chance for you to visit inland and see some of its Moorish and Roman existence: – Old castle ruins and stone walls standing for centuries that are extraordinary. Visit Silves, the old moorish capital, its castle and the XII century gothic Cathedral. Climb up to Monchique mountains and to Fóia, the highest point of the Algarve. Still in the mountains, we stop for lunch where you can sample some of the local cuisine (price not included).
After lunch we continue to the beautiful town of Lagos, a town linked to the Portuguese Discoveries, where you will have the opportunity to see the old slave market (the first in Europe), the statue of Prince Henry, the Navigator, Saint Anthony`s golden church, the fort and the old town. We continue towards Cape Saint Vincent, the extreme southwest point of Europe, known as the “End of the World”. We visit the strongest lighthouse in Europe, Baleeira – beautiful fixing harbour and passing by the Fortaleza of Sagres ( Home of Prince Henry´s School of Navigation).
