Inland Algarve Tour from Quarteira
On the day of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Quarteira at around 8:30 am. Climb aboard your comfortable tour bus and in just 20 minutes you'll find yourself in Loulé, where your tour of inland Algarve will begin.
Enjoy a guided tour of Loulé's most emblematic places of interest: you'll visit the municipal market, a striking historic building characterised by its unusal pink-coloured architecture. Inside, you'll be captivated by the lively feel of daily life here.
As you stroll through the streets of this pretty Portuguese town, you'll have the opportunity to admire important monuments like the Igreja Matriz, a 13th century church and belfry built on the foundations of an old mosque, and the Castle of Loulé, a fascinating fortress which dates back to the 2nd century!
After exploring Loulé, you'll head back to the bus for the next part of your tour: a visit to the São Brás De Alportel Cork Factory. Inside, you'll discover why this material is so important in Portugal and learn all about the process of making cork.
You'll then have free time in São Brás De Alportel to relax, wander around and eat lunch at your own pace, before meeting back up for the journey to Alte, considered by many to be the most beautiful village in the Algarve. Tiny picturesque whitewashed houses, narrow cobbled streets and an undeniable charm are just a handful of the characteristics of a town that the Romans, Muslims and Chistians have all called home throughout its history.
At the end of the day, you'll make the return journey to Quarteira, arriving back at 6:30 pm.
