Description

On your holidays in the Algarve there are some highlights of the region that you can't miss! In the Best of the West we take you to visit the most important sights combining history, panoramic views, culture and free time for shopping. We start in Silves, one of the most scenic cities in the region, it was also the ancient Moorish capital of the al-Gharb - Algarve, known as XELB. The hilltop is dominated by the city's splendid castle - the grandest monument to Islamic rule in the region. On the way to Lagos, the most lively tourist town in the western Algarve, is also of great historical significance. Prince Henry the Navigator launched the Age of Discovery of Portugal from Lagos in the 15th century. His extraordinary vision, helped put Portugal on the world map, and Lagos is proud of its maritime heritage. Free time to explore this beautiful city, and the most emblematic monuments of this important Era, such as, the statue of Prince Henry the Navigator, the slave market, the church of St. Anthony, known as the golden church, and the statue of the young King Sebastian, whose story changed the destiny of Portugal. Free time for lunch (not included) and shopping in Lagos. Visit the bizarre rock formations of Ponta da Piedade (the path to Ponta da Piedade is about 10 min walk each way). We end the day visiting Cape St. Vincent, the famous End of the World. Take the chance to taste the last sausage before America.
