we were located in silves and had a private car and we arrived maybe after two hours in the sleepy village monchique. before we stoped at the place which gave monchique its name. "caldas de monchique"...a natural spa...with high class hotel...located hidden in a steep valley...is very nice, but maybe in 30 minutes the whole place was explored. monchique itself is a small and very pittoresque village with tiny streets in old archtiecture. we moved up to a rotten castle and the panorama view was sensationell. in 3 hours the village was seen. also interessting in this area is the highest mountain in this region called " foia". there is a mirador and during clear days its possible to overview the whole coastline of the algarve, which is maybe 50 kilometers far from this place. because of our private car we had a perfect day in the backland of the algarve without any sightseeing stress.
