Castro Marim

On the top of one hill stands a castle, on the other a star-shaped fort. Between them the houses of Castro Marim, with their white walls with brightly-painted borders, their flat roofs and their ornate chimneys sculpted into lace-like patterns. Linking the church, the castle and the fort, the streets of Castro Marim are lined with houses whose simplicity is typical of the architecture of the Algarve. White predominates, broken here and there by ochres and luminous blues.

Right by Altura, with its squat houses laid out along perpendicular streets over the plain, the Alagoa Beach, also known as Altura, takes up a section of the endless sands that head out eastwards towards Monte Gordo and westwards to the Ria Formosa Natural Park.
Separated from the town by a series of low dunes and surrounded by the green of pine trees and aromatic gum rockroses, the Beach, washed in calm and warm waters perfect for long, slow swims, is ideal for a spot of rest and relaxation.

Vila Real de Santo Antonio

The successful experiment of the reconstruction of Lisbon after the earthquake in 1755 was  repeated in Vila Real de Santo António.
To appreciate the town planning that was followed in Vila Real de Santo António, you have to walk around the city's streets. Begin in Praça Marquês de Pombal, in the heart of the town, with its black and white cobblestones radiating from the central obelisk built in 1776. This square contains three of the major urban features commonly found in the eighteenth century: the church, the Town Hall and the old guardhouse. Afterwards, you should walk a few blocks and see the privately commissioned buildings, which nonetheless continue to adhere to an obvious architectural formula.

In the Algarve, archaeological remains have been discovered tracing settlement back over 6,000 years. However, it was under the Roman empire that the southern coastline was settled in a more organised fashion.
In the 17th century, Tavira remained a major commercial centre on the Algarve. From this period dates much of the cultural heritage further revealing a profound religious influence. Hence, there are today 21 churches in the city including the highlights of the Church of São Paulo (Saint Paul), the Church of Santo António (Saint Anthony), the Church of Carmo (Carmel) and the Church of São Francisco (Saint Francis).

Praia Verde

A huge, flat expanse of sand that continues endlessly in either direction be it eastwards or westwards, Verde Beach is a picture postcard of tranquillity.
The calm of the sea and the pleasing air and sea temperatures only serve to improve the surroundings and create the ideal holiday destination backed up by support infrastructures such as the hire of nautical sports equipment.
