Almancil road map

Does anyone know where I can get a reasonably detailed web or paper based road map for Sao Lourenco/Almancil area?

Maps I've found on the web give reasonable detail for Almancil but nothing for Sao Lourenco i.e it appears to have no roads!.

Really don't think you will find one.These places are just a scattering of a few houses reached by country roads.You'd need the equivalent of our hiking maps.

The portuguese equivalent of the UK Ordnance Survey maps are mostly 20 to 30 years out of date! I have a Rough Guide map of the Algarve at 1:100,000 scale which shows most of the things I need for cycling but that is full of mistakes! Even so it is a lot better than the usual 'tourist' maps in the shops.

Sao Lourenco has no roads on my map either., but is just off the N125 immediately to the east of Almancil, a sort of indeterminate splodge of buildings with its church highlighted.
