Things to do

de Silves:

The Castelo de Silves offers up great views of the town and countryside. This unique castle with sandstone walls was fully restored in the 1940s. The Moorish well and a rose-coloured water cistern were constructed in the late-12th century. Castelo de Silves was abandoned in the 16th century but is today a popular tourist site.

Museu Municipal de Arqueologia:

Museu Municipal de Arqueologia is a fascinating museum with Roman and Moorish artefacts. The centre of the museum houses an original 14-foot-wide, 60-foot-deep Moorish well, surrounded by a spiral staircase. One wall of the museum is made of glass to showcase a section of the original fort wall.

Sé de Silves:

Next door to the Castelo de Silves is the Cathedral, or Sé, of Silves. Original construction began in the 13th century, but most of that structure was destroyed in an earthquake in the 14th century. Today it is an example of Gothic and Baroque styles.

Wine tasting:

Portugal is quickly gaining a reputation for fine wines, and some of the finest come from the Silves region. The AdegaAdega Cooperativa de Lagoa offers visitors the chance to tour vineyards and sample some of the region's wines.

Torreão da Porta da Cidade:

The Turret of the City Gate is the last of the original four gates to the ancient city that still remains. Dating back to the 12th or 13th century, visitors can enter the tower via an external stairway and enjoy views from the high walkway.

Cruz de Portugal:

The impressive Cross of Portugal is a nine-foot-tall structure made of limestone. It is located en route to the castle, near the eastern end of the riverfront. It was here that the kingdom of Portugal historically had its border. The cross is believed to date back to the late-15th century.

Weather in the Silves region

The weather in the Silves region is typical for Portugal, with warm to moderately hot summers of little rain and mild, relatively wet winters. July and August are the hottest months with an average temperature of 28°C. There is little to no rain in the summer months; March is usually the wettest.

Travel to Silves

We were all men in our forties and never during our stay did we feel like we were on top of each other! It's crucial for one to have their own privacy. The villa in itself is gorgeous, very well located, super clean and lots of little things we enjoyed, like the games room, the hot tub and the private pool. We could walk to most places, but since we wanted to explore the Algarve we rented a car through the agency. The entire team at AlgarveVacation was wonderful from Olivia who is tireless and always a simple email away, to the lovely girl that welcomed us to the house. The pictures truly do no justice to how amazing a holiday one has spent here. I will definitely recommend and will hopefully come back in a near future! Regards Keith

Situated in a quiet area but with a choice of good restaurants within easy walking distance and a short walk to the sea. Everything needed for a relaxing holiday is in the apartment and the nearest beach is a short stroll away. The two balconies have sun from early morning until evening and enjoy lovely sea views. I was most impressed by the owners attention to detail and corresponding with them was simple with quick and informative replies. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.
