Join us on a journey of discovery of the inland Algarve, specifically the area known as “Barrocal”, – a journey to delight your senses, awaken your curiosity and whet your appetite for more…

Our first port of call is the small town of São Brás de Alportel – quite typical of the Algarve in its architecture and activities. Here we visit a cork factory. The cork that is harvested in the surrounding area is brought to this factory, prepared, treated and then exported. We visit a local typical cake shop renowned for its traditional produce – carob bread, almond cakes and honey cakes. There is time also to visit the fascinating São Brás Ethnographic Museum.

Free time for lunch (not included).

Onward we go to Salir- a bucolic village where you can see the remnants of the ancient castle and its walls. Our last stop is “Quinta do Freixo” – a large estate where biological agriculture is practiced. Here you can learn the secrets of their famous preserves and taste some of the delicious produce. An excellent opportunity to sample the delights of this fascinating region.
