Do you want to discover some of the most charming inland towns in the Algarve? On this trip, you'll visit Loulé, Alte and more!

Inland Algarve Tour

Four towns in the Algarve are waiting to be discovered! We'll pick you up from your hotel in Portimão at 8:30 am and we'll then take an approximately 40-minute journey towards our first stop: Loulé.

We'll first visit the municipal market of Loulé. You're sure to be surprised by the Arabic influences in the architecture. At first glance, it looks like a mosque rather than somewhere to buy groceries! After exploring the market, we'll take you on a guided tour of Loulé which will last for one hour and will also lead us to the castle. Did you know that the ownership of this has been disputed for years? You'll find out all about this and more!

Next, we'll get back on the bus and head to the outskirts of São Brás De Alportel, where we'll visit a cork factory and find out about the manufacturing process. Interestingly, Portugal is the world's biggest producer of this material, and even NASA is one of its customers.

We'll then head into the town of São Brás De Alportel and you'll have time to get lunch (not included) and enjoy the surroundings. Next, we'll visit the town of Alte where you'll be able to explore its narrow streets and white houses set in the stunning mountain scenery.

We'll then board the bus again and make our way back to Portimão. We'll drop you back at your hotel at around 6:30 pm.
