A paradise to discover


Many are the travelers who, after landing, turn their back into this spetacular part of the coast:sandy not rocky;quiet not busy;historical not touristic;therefore. . . unique!
On this journey I will be able to show you that since roman presence(that used the port of Faro as the headquarters for commerce with Rome)the eastern Algarve was stage for an intense activity in the past.
Allong the coast and depending where your'e lodged, we'll do the ''pearls'' of this beautiful part of the region together!A journey you will never forget, on the contrary, you'll always remember!

Itinerary

Leaving the hotel the plan is to do a walk & talk tour of the capital, Faro:old town and cathedral.
Olhão, further east, is a MUST see market place(except sundays)and fishing village. Tavira and its more than 20 churches confirms the importance of the town in the discoveries time. Santa Luzia is a perfect spot to eat octopus but also to feel a genuine lay back atmosphere. The last pearl not to miss is Cacela Velha, wonderful for an oyster experience.
Please note that the amount of coast planned here is only duable in 8 hours depending on the starting point.
