Places to Visit - Monchique Mountains

An area of dramatic hills about 20 minutes by car from Armacao de Pera, the Monchique region is one where nature and traditional Portuguese culture thrive together.

Enjoy the green hills, pure air, tranquillity and dramatic views from the highest point (just over 900metres) in the Algarve - Foia.

Visit the spa village of Caldas de Monchique (known in Roman times as a spa centre), and sample the waters. Legend says they are source of eternal youth..

There are many walking trails which take you through some of the most rural areas of the Algarve, and offer spectular views across the region.
