Discover the East-Algarve delightful towns and serene coasts, and in the end, enjoy a delicious coffee or lunch in Spain, on a fantastic tour!
I’ll take you to Cacela Velha, a tiny pearl nested on top of the only cliff of the East Algarve, facing the ever-changing Ria Formosa. This is the beginning of the Natural Park, a system of lagoons and barrier islands enclosing a vast area of marshes, salt pans, and creeks. Cacela Velha, surrounded by this wonderful scenery, is a white and blue jewel that has remained untouched over centuries. In the main square, there is a medieval cistern. The fortress was built in 1794, and we highlight the Renaissance doorway and the fine collection of religious art displayed in the Main Church.
We follow the coastline towards Spain, to visit Vila Real de Santo António that is a relatively modern settlement that was rebuilt in 1774 after the 1755 earthquake and tsunami by the Marquês de Pombal. The grid plan of the city center is similar to the layout of the Baixa district in Lisbon. Vila Real’s central, 18th century, tree-lined square is named Praça Marquês de Pombal after the great man. You can wander the surrounding streets of Rua Dr. Teofilo Braga and Rua 5 Outubro viewing the many restaurants and shops, or wander down to the river bank for a fresh breeze.
And at the end of the tour, we’ll cross the River Guadiana by ferry to visit a charming town in Spain where you will have some free time to walk on its picturesque streets and squares, to do shopping, or have a coffee or lunch. (Your consumption is not included in the tour price.)
