Silves day trip from Alvor

Explore the rustic town of Silves and discover history, architecture and tradition. Only a 20-minute drive is one of the best well-preserved castles in the Algrave, which is easy to find as it sits proudly on a hill looking over the town.

Stroll around the Moorish fortress to truly take in the grand scale of the attractive red stonewalls and gothic towers.

After visiting the castle, visit the 13th century Cathedral, which homes well-preserved Crusader tombs. Take a refreshing break out of the heat and sample traditional food in one of the cafes and restaurants that line the mosaic-decorated lanes and winding cobbled streets. Visit the museums or take a walk in the shaded, green countryside for picturesque views.
