Why Allure Villas chose São Bartolomeu de Messines

Silves is a delightful and traditional Portuguese town that makes for an enjoyable day trip from the coastal resorts of the western Algarve. The peaceful ambience of the town today does not reflect the historical importance of Silves, which during the North African Moor’s rule of the Algarve (700-1200ad), was the capital and defensive stronghold of the entire region. Remnants of this illustrious era can be discovered throughout Silves, and include the huge red brick castle, the impregnatable city walls and defensive gates. Today, Silves is an unhurried and charming town that is far removed from the hectic pace of life found along the coastal region of the Algarve.

Silves has a lot to offer to tourists and is regarded as the best destination for a day trip from the large resort towns. Silves is a fascinating destination, ideal for those visitors who wish to learn about the early history of the region. During the Moorish era Silves was a major trading location and this strategic importance was bitterly defended with the construction of the mighty castle and the solid city walls. Interestingly, Silves was also an important port, with a constant flow of boats departing for the Mediterranean or North Africa. Today the Arada River’s flow has altered and been reduced, now only suitable for tourist boats, but it makes for a cooling backdrop to the town.
