About Caldas de Monchique

Situadas a cerca de 250 metros sobre el nivel del mar, en un hermoso valle de la Sierra de Monchique, y en un ambiente de vegetación exuberante y de luminosidad incomparable, la estación termal es un inesperado oasis de tranquilidad y un rincón verdaderamente paradisíaco. En el punto más alto de la Sierra se encuentra el pico de Foia desde el que se disfruta un paisaje lleno de contrastes y una vista admirable. Un siglo antes de Cristo, las aguas de Monchique ya eran utilizadas para curar el cansancio del cuerpo y de la mente por los romanos, que les llamaban "aguas sagradas", como demuestran numerosos y importantes restos arqueológicos encontrados en las zonas adyacentes al nacimiento de las aguas de Monchique. Es un Algarve diferente, envuelto en una atmósfera de paz y sosiego que le proporcionará un descanso sagrado. Muy cerca, Silves, antigua capital árabe merece una mención especial, así como Sagres, lugar que evoca a epopeya de los Descubrimientos y su gran impulsor, el Infante D. Henrique (s. XIV/XV).

What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"Loved this day trip to see the countryside of Portugal! Saw a complete different side which was so refreshing! Ask for Miguel he was super funny and knowledgeable and interacted with both us and the kids! Loved every second"
★★★★★
"We went on the all day safari and our driver Miguel really made the day for us. We visited a few local sights and a castle, drove off road through the mountains, went firewater and honey tasting, had lunch and then visited a public fresh water pool. The lunch was 3 courses and unlimited wine and juice; if you wanted more food the restaurant where ready and waiting and we were able to get a second jug of white wine to go with the red with no problems at all and no additional cost. It was a great unique experience that was different to day trips we had done elsewhere and I could not recommend Miguel enough!!"
★★★★★
"Our guide Ricardo was so knowledgeable and showed us the real Algarve (his Algarve) off the beaten track, with some wonderful views and real local food & produce on the way. We visited a castle, Pity Rock, and a wonderful local family and her farm, to name a few of the highlights. We crossed rivers in our robust Landrover and really had a lovely day out. Highly recommended for adventurous people of any age!"
