    Things to do

    Loule city centre:

    The historic town centre dates back to the 13th century. The streets that wind their way up the hillside are typical of the Algarve region: narrow and cobbled. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and cafés to enjoy.

    Loule's food market

    The food market in Loule is one of the city's most popular destinations. Fresh fruits and vegetables are abundant, as are local cheeses, wines, and fresh fish. The market has retained its local flair despite its rise in popularity with tourists.

    Saturday Market:

    Each Saturday locals sell their handicrafts, artwork and homemade delicacies from morning to midnight. Brightly coloured earthen pots, intricate handmade lace, colourful blankets, and wooden toys are just a few of the typical items sold here. This is a definite must-do.

    Castle of Loule:

    The site where the Castle of Loule now stands was believed to have been first occupied by the Romans before being transformed into a military defence station. Today visitors can view three original grey towers and climb up them for great views. The Garden of Sulks, an ancient Arab cemetery inside the castle walls, is also interesting.

    Olhos de Agua:

    The beach in Olhos de Agua is one of the closest to Loule. The Praia d'Agua has a pretty stretch of golden sand and clean waters. It is generally less crowded than the beaches in Albufeira. Olhos de Agua's main street runs straight down to the beach with a nice selection of restaurants, cafés, and bars.

    Albufeira:

    This popular coastal tourist town is 16 kilometres from Loule, and there's certainly no lack of things do: drink and dance down the famous ‘strip’, stroll the cobbled streets of the Old Town, or sunbathe on Fishermen's Beach.
