124 Reviews

Looming 902 meters over the colorful spa town of Caldas de Monchique below, Mt Fóia is the Algarve’s highest peak and makes a scenic day trip from nearby Portimão. It’s the spellbinding views that make Fóia so popular, spanning the rugged Serra de Monchique mountain range, the Alvor River, Portimão, and on clear days, the ocean-lapped cliffs along the Atlantic coast.

Hiking to the summit is a worthwhile challenge for adventurous travelers, but the mountaintop can also be reached by car, where there are two main viewpoints and a cluster of restaurants offering equally impressive views.

Historical Algarve

Historical Algarve

The Algarve is Portugal’s most international region. It is the destination of choice for people from all over the globe, and that is why we often hear a little of every language spoken in the streets of the region. People flock to this corner of the world for various reasons: from the warm climate, to the stunning - and famous - coast line, and the unique Mediterranean cuisine. The trip includes a visit to Silves Castle, with its Islamic military architecture and one of the most well preserved castles in the country, which doubles as a viewpoint thanks to its location at the top of a large hill. Get ready for a breathtaking view. We then continue to Foia, nestled in the Monchique Mountain. Foia is the Algarve’s highest point, and you will certainly be impressed by the stunning panoramic views. In the charming city of Lagos, historically linked to the Portuguese Discoveries, you will be able to visit Saint Anthony’s Church and the Slave Market, from the 14th Century.
