About this Tour

A day-visit to Silves and Monchique encompasses history, culture and breath-taking landscapes.

At Silves, the first Arab capital of the Kingdom of the Algarve, you will have free time to visit Silves Castle (fee not included) and Silves Cathedral, both built with the red stone indigenous to this area.

After that, we will wend our way through the Monchique mountains to Fóia, the highest point in the Algarve, with free time to take pictures and an opportunity to taste one of the liqueurs typical of the region.

The dark red of mighty castle walls that loom over the city and the surrounding countryside; the interplay of stone and light in the architecture of a Gothic church; reminders of the Moorish presence in the city’s history; streets of white houses that reflect the sun and the blue sky: herein lies the appeal of Silves, where the past merges with the present to make every visit an enduring memory.

Points of Interest: Moorish Castle of Silves + Cathedral of Silves 


Encounter the stunning panorama of sea and mountains. The broadest views are seen at Fóia, which at 902 metres is the highest point in the Algarve. From there the view stretches away on one side as far as Cape St. Vincent (and north to the Serra da Arrábida, near Lisbon), and on the other to Faro and a vast semi-circle of hillsopen views, from the highest point of the Algarve.
