Monchique is famous for its cork trees and cork industry. The hike up Psseios an Serra was very enjoyable if you love hiking. The route does have some steep slopes but all worth it in the end when you reach the summit. Lovely 360 degree...More

The mountains are so beautiful and green, the views across the Algarve are to die for . Every corner you turn is another different view. Don't miss this place.

This is the highest point in the Algarve. 902m above sea level. It's a long way from SIlves but the view along the drive is breath taking. When you get close to the mountain, be on the lookout for Storks. They have lots of nest...More
