Inland Algarve


Have you ever thought about wondering around an orange grove,
smell the wonderful flower parfum and listen to what an expert has to
say?
Come and join a fun, informative and tasty citrus experience. Taste a
freshly made fruit juice and pick your favorite ones to take home.

Silves Castle was probably built, on the site of late Roman or Visigothic
fortifications from the 4th/5th centuries, during the Moorish occupation,
which started around 715, and was part of the city walls that surrounded
the town.
This castle is definitely one of the best-preserved examples of Moorish
Castles in Portugal.
A Must See place we'll dedicate time on this tour.
