Exploring the cultural legacy - Daytrips
Ranging from picturesque seafront villages such as Sagres, Burgau, Alvor and Ferragudo to larger towns such as Tavira and Olhão, Algarve offers you a wide selection of interesting and off-the-beaten track spots that are worth a visit. The green countryside is also a must-see, especially Serra de Monchique, where trekking and guided tours are available. Fisheries and canned-tuna industry were once the main economic sectors in Algarve, before tourism took their place and are still very present in the region, through specialized restaurants and museums.
Despite being regarded as a sun-and-beach destination, Algarve holds a strong historical track, based largely in former Moorish and Arab occupations. Throughout the whole region it is possible to visit monuments and historical places that relate to the Moorish influence. We suggest you to take day trips to Aljezur, Sagres, Silves, Tavira and Castro Marim to immerse into the historic Algarve.
