Hard to find I'm afraid.

Monchique Uncovered has a pretty basic but printable map of the town

monchiqueuncovered.com/Portals/Monchique/map…

I found this sketch map of the town

…wordpress.com/2011/12/monchique_map_7.jpg

The others I know of pinch theirs from Google Maps eg

http://algarve.angloinfo.com/maps/859/Monchique+Map.html

The best overall map of the Algarve I have ever found is the Rough Guide map, scale 1: 100,000 (1cm = 1km) which I bought in WHSmith for £5.99. They mark major tourist sites as well as what you would expect to find on such a map. You can buy on line of course, from www.roughguides.com

The Portuguese equivalent of the Ordnance Survey covers the country in a series of maps at 1:25,000 but they are fiendishly difficult to actually find in a shop. Their website is www.igoe.pt

A specialist map company might be able to help.

Freemaps don't include Monchique in their repertoire.

I hope that helps.

Thanks for your reply cubsur,

I have not been able to access the link to www.igoe.pt unfortunately, but I shall keep trying. We have spent 3 holidays up in th eMountains and are going again in June so I was trying to get a map that was a bit more accurate than average.

Thanks again

Bon Dia

Dear Cubsur,

Thanks again for your comprehensive reply. I managed to get hold of a 'Military' map of the area that was ok on the kitchen table but trying to read it in a car with our aged eyes was a nightmare! We had a fabulous time and are staying in the same villa again next month. We found the sketch map of the town handy and much more accurate than google earth on the location of our villa, we were just off the 267 according to GE when in fact we were actually off the 266!

Thanks for your help

Bon Dia

Pleased to hear that. And yes too many people take Google Earth as gospel. Half the markers on it are rubbish!

All the restaurants and hotels around Monchique marked on the map on this site are Completely Wrong so don't rely on it to find a restaurant.
