Description

Discover the magic of the wild Algarve countryside. See the Castle of Silves, built between the 8th and 13th centuries, catch magnificent views from the highest point in the region at the top of Fóia, and marvel at the cliffs near the Ponta da Piedade lighthouse.

Visit the Castle of Silves, standing majestically on a hill overlooking the town of Silves, once the capital of Algarve. Hear about its construction and use as a fortress by the Moors. Climb to the top of Fóia, the Algarve's highest point at 2,959 feet (902 m) above sea level. Take in the coastline, including the famous Alvor Estuary and Cape St. Vincent.

Next, visit Lagos, once a Celtic settlement named Lacobriga with origins dating back to 2000 BC. Visit its port, was once visited by Phoenicians and at one time occupied by the Romans. Learn about the city's golden age in the 15th century when the maritime discoveries began.

You visit monuments like the Governor's Castle, constructed by Arabs, and Prince Henry's statue, dedicated to the Age of Discovery. Explore the Fort of the Banner's Promontory, an 18th-century structure with a moat and drawbridge.

End your tour at Cape St. Vincent, Europe's southwesternmost point, and examine the extraordinary rock formations and fascinating grottos that surround it. Marvel at the nearby cliffs, some standing as high as 66 feet (20 m).

Good overall coverage about the different cities and about general facts on Portugal. However not much information about history especially the castle and very little time in castle and Lagos. Also very poor lunch.

4/5 Aug 19, 2019

Good trip though lot of time is wasted in commuting. I wish they will do something for traveler from faro and Vilamoura etc. it took me 3 hours back to hotel which I feel is too long.
