If you are looking for a destination in the very southern reaches of the country of Portugal, then the pretty town of Algoz is a wonderful option. Situated in the municipality of Silves, an Algoz holiday provides the opportunity to experience a traditional and exciting way of native life, without having to sacrifice access to a wide variety of popular activities. Not only will an Algoz holiday rental apartment provide all of the comforts of home, it will offer some magnificent views of the southern Portuguese coastline.
Although only a traditional Portuguese market town, Algoz offers plenty for travellers to see and do. As well as various markets during the week, there are plenty of fantastic restaurants to be enjoyed, many of which lay on fabulous entertainment and shows for patrons. On the physical side, an Algoz holiday offers numerous sports and outdoor pursuits including tennis, golf, horse riding, fishing, cycling and walking.
If you decide to venture out from your comfortable Algoz holiday rental apartment for the day, then it is worth taking the 10 mile journey to the neighbouring town of Silves, once the capital of the Algarve region. There are several great attractions to be found on a day trip to Silves including the Fortaleza, the hilltop sandstone walls which have parapets, giving spectacular views of the town and the surrounding area. Most notable in the town is Silves Castle, a Moorish castle which was built between the 8th and 13th centuries. Silves Castle is often deemed to be one of the best preserved castles of its type to be found in Portugal. Last but by no means least is the archaeological museum which displays a host of local antiquities.
