Monchique Silves and Foia - Half Day

Long before Faro became capital of the Algarve, the honour belonged to the ancient city of Silves. Discover the Algarve's rich and fascinating past on this exciting day tour.

Enjoy spending time in Silves, which includes a visit to a splendid Moorish Castle (entrance fee not included) and the 12th century cathedral. On leaving Silves, you’ll drive up to Foia, which at nearly 3000ft, is the highest point in the Algarve. From here, on a clear day, you can see across to the Atlantic Ocean. You'll continue the tour to Monchique, a typical village nestled in the scenic hillside. Finally you will stop at Caldas da Rainha (Queen’s Spa), famous for its hot springs and pottery, where you will have free time for shopping for handicrafts before starting your return journey.
