Full description

Following pickup from your Albufeira accommodation, begin a day out enjoying the medieval Silves Castle. As well as the castle itself, take in the statue of King D. Sancho I at the castle's entrance. This statue dates back to the time of the Christian Reconquest of the Iberian Peninsula, the Portuguese monarch D. Sancho. Following the castle, visit the cathedral of Silves before taking the opportunity to explore the old city, making the descent through the old and tight streets. Admire the many local stores, small shops, and cafes, which have decades of history behind them. As you make you way back near the river in Silves, make a short stop to the Chapel of Bones in Alcantarilha. Once back in Albufeira, your friendly guide drops you off at your accommodation where your tour concludes.

Nice tour to Silves, our very cheerful tour guide Luis told us about the special sights in the area along the way. He also gave us tips to go to in the region. Since we were on holiday in the late season, we had the tour all to ourselves, so we had plenty of time in Silves and could also get extra stop points afterwards. All in all a very successful day! Thanks Luis!

We loved this tour, our tour guide Louis took us to the Lady of the Rock Chapel after Silves Castle and the Chapel of Bones, which was a lovely extra! He was lovely and friendly, thanks for a great day!
