Silves (capital of the Algarve until the 17th century) is situated 11 km from the coast. Away from the tourists who come for the most known beaches, Silves is very calm and friendly. Due to the river and the very fertile valley, nowadays full of orange trees, it was in former times a very important city . The historical proof is the castle and its wall around the city, the museum with a cistern dating from the time of the Arabs, the large cathedral, a former mosque and the permanent acticity of archeologists who never stop digging to find the remains of the Phoenicians, Egyptians, Arabs and Romans.
In Silves, there are many places to visit, like a watermill with its natural "swimming pool", or Monchique known for the huge eucalyptus trees and the water springs, or a boat trip descending the river to the sea. Free afternoons will give you all the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the city, its surroundings, and of course several beaches.
We advise you to rent and share a car if you are planning any of these trips.
