Monchique: 'The Garden of The Algarve' is one of the most attractive areas inland, and one which offers a complete contrast to the coastal resorts, while still being within a short drive of popular tourist amenities and attractions There is evidence that the area was populated as far back as the stone age! Even so, the tranquil Monchique hills have remained unaltered for centuries, the mountain air is still fresh, and pure clear water still flows from the mountain springs to the taps! Historic evidence shows that early Kings and Queens of Portugal travelled here for it's 'medicinal water'.
A calm haven for those seeking fresh air and fauna...
Caldas De Monchique: A miniature paradise slightly south of Monchique, with a working outdoor bread oven in the town centre that still bakes delicious fresh bread for visitors during certain days in the high season. The beautiful gardens are another must-see, and so worth a visit - wherever you are in the Algarve...
