PORTIMãO

Portimão is a major fishing port, and significant investment has been poured into transforming it into an attractive cruise port as well. The city itself is spacious and has several good shopping streets—though sadly many of the more traditional retailers have closed in the wake of the global economic crisis. There is also a lovely riverside area that just begs to be strolled (lots of the coastal cruises depart from here). View more

Don’t leave without stopping for an alfresco lunch at the Doca da Sardinha ("sardine dock") between the old bridge and the railway bridge. You can sit at one of many inexpensive establishments, eating charcoal-grilled sardines (a local specialty) accompanied by chewy fresh bread, simple salads, and local wine.

Exkursionen in PORTIMãO

Explore the picturesque, most westerly region of Portugal along the coast of the Algarve and visit the towns of Sagres and Lagos.


Depart the pier for the approximately 45-minute drive west to Cape St. Vincent and explore the historical places related to and significant of many Portuguese discoveries.


Cape St. Vincent

Named after the martyred St. Vincent, the cape is the site of numerous naval battles, including those between Admiral Rodney and the Spanish in 1780, and Admiral Jervis and Admiral Nelson against the Spanish fleet in 1797. As you stand on Europe's westernmost point, admire a steadfast lighthouse whose guiding beam safely directs hundreds of ships past the cape every year. What happened here six centuries ago led to the discovery of the world as we know it today. Before then only the bravest of Mediterranean sailors dared to venture beyond the "Pillars of Hercules" (Strait of Gibraltar), and none was foolhardy enough to sail past the rugged cliffs which marked the end of the known world. All that changed in the 1400s: the world was opened up to discovery, exploration and settlement; and Portugal and other countries went on to acquire overseas empires and great wealth. All this was due mainly to the foresight and determination of one man, Portugal's scholarly Prince Henry.


Sagres

Some consider Sagres to have been the headquarters of Prince Henry the Navigator's School of Navigation. The school may have been within the 17th-century fortress that was defended from the shore by mighty ramparts, and from the sea by towering cliffs. Prince Henry is also reputed to have created a shipbuilding yard in the small natural harbour below.


Lagos

Under the Moors, Lagos became an important trading post. After the Christians re-conquered Lagos in 1241, the town was a favoured residence of Henry the Navigator. The town faces an easterly direction and is set around a sheltered harbour with the Ponta da Piedade headland providing shelter to the largest beach on the western side of the Algarve, Meia Praia. The exposed cliffs of the Ponta da Piedade are regarded as the best natural feature of southern Portugal with grottos, arches and sea caves.

Following your guided walking tour, some free time is made available for you to browse its quaint, narrow streets at your leisure.


At the conclusion of your visit, re-board the coach for the approximately 30-minute return drive back to the pier in Portimão.



Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking with some steps to negotiate, and is suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair; able to embark/disembark the coach via steps. Some surfaces are uneven, paved and or cobblestone. We recommend guests wear comfortable clothing, walking shoes and bring sun protection.

Quinta dos Vales Estate & Alvor

Discover the Old World village of Alvor and the award-winning wines of the Quinta dos Vales estate during this delightful, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Alvor

Depart the pier for the short drive past Praia da Rocha and on to Alvor, a delightful little fishing port with a history that extends back to the Classical Era. The Moors first occupied this area in 716 and there are ruins of a wealthy Roman villa located slightly inland from the present village. Although an earthquake destroyed most of the traditional Moorish village in 1755, you can still see remains of Alvor's history in places such as the 16th century Igreja Matriz with its beautiful Manueline arches and pillars. The charm of the old town with its narrow cobbled streets leading down to the harbour on the lagoon of the river estuary still remains.

Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of Alva. Afterward, some free time is made available to explore the village at your leisure.


Quinta Dos Vales

Next, re-board the coach and drive to Quinta dos Vales for a guided walking tour of the property, its sculpture garden and vineyards. From vine to bottle, the Quinta dos Vales wine philosophy is based on quality, as opposed to quantity. This may be the reason Quinta dos Vales have very quickly become one of the leading wine producers in the upcoming Algarvean wine market. Proof of their success is in the number of medals and awards, over 100 since 2008. Following your tour, proceed to the well-preserved Tasting Room of the Manor House for a tasting of the award-winning red, white and rose wines produced here, accompanied by a splendid selection of Portuguese specialities.


At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.



Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 547 yards (about 500 metres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and at the sites visited. This tour is suitable for guests with limited mobility, but is not wheelchair-accessible. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Guests must be at least 21 years old to participate in tastings of alcoholic beverages. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Experience the exquisite beauty and allure of the Algarve during this scenic visit to Lagos, the magnificent Ponta da Piedade coastline and the fashionable resort of Carvoeiro.


Depart the pier for the approximately 30-minute drive to Lagos, one of the oldest settlements in the Algarve.


Lagos

Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of the town, once an important Moorish trading post. The older part of Lagos is still circled by the city walls that were constructed during the 16th century when it was the residence of the governors of the Algarve and the fort, Ponta da Bandeira, by Batata beach is part of the 17th century fortifications that were added to protect the town.

Stroll about the narrow streets of Lagos then proceed to the main square to see the city's highlights. Included is a visit to the beautiful Church of San Antonio for a look at its famous 'Golden Chapel'. Exquisitely decorated, every inch of its gilt and carved interior is filled with a fantasy of cherubs struggling with animals and fish. Following your tour, some free time is made available for you to explore Lagos on your own before re-boarding your coach for the drive south to Ponta da Piedade.


Ponta da Piedade

The craggy coastline of the Ponta da Piedade is bordered by dramatically eroded cliffs that shelter a series of picture-perfect coves, and is acclaimed to be one of the most scenic areas of the entire Algarve. Full of grottos, unknown bays and quiet beaches, the Ponte da Piedade is particularly captivating when viewed from the sea. After taking in scenic coastal views, your drive continues farther along the coast en route to the resort town of Carvoeiro.


Carvoeiro

This small, attractive hideaway is highlighted by a spectacular setting between red sea cliffs and the surrounding hills. Once a secluded fishing village, the resort now boasts expensive villas and holiday apartments. The centre of Carvoeiro isn't very big and there are just two roads leading down into the town where they meet in a small square behind the beach. There are plenty of shops in town and the beach, Praia do Carvoeiro is a beautifully sheltered sandy bay and spreads out just in front of the square with cliffs protecting it on either side. There are bars and cafés ideally placed around the square to enjoy the view.

After a refreshment stop, time is made available for you to explore the area on your own, browse the boutiques, or simply marvel at the stunning ocean view and dramatic cliffs.


Following your visit, re-board the coach for the approximately 30-minute return to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking and it is suitable for guests with limited mobility and those who utilise a wheelchair. Guests must be able to embark/disembark the coach via steps. On Mondays and Public Holidays the Golden Chapel in Lagos is closed and cannot be visited, only an outside viewing. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing, flat shoes and sun protection.

The Moorish City of Silves

Silves is famed for its imposing Moorish red brick castle that dominates the town's skyline, sleepy cafés line streets close to the river Arada and offer a relaxed ambience unique to the region. Below the castle is the gothic cathedral which is the only example of a gothic religious building in southern Portugal.

Depart the pier for the approximately 30-minute drive inland to Silves. Once the Moorish capital of the Algarve, it was a place of grandeur with glittering minarets, bustling bazaars and three circuits of walls that guarded the city.


Silves

Upon arrival, take a brief walk uphill to the Archaeological Museum. Built on the site of a 19th century residence where the water reservoir was discovered, this became the centrepiece of the museum. In an excellent state of preservation, it dates back to the Almohade period (12th - 13th centuries) and made out of Silves sandstone it is around 20 metres (22 yards) in depth. It is considered an example unique to Portugal as it has a helix staircase with three windows to ensure easier access to the water. These are features rare to Arab architecture.


Next, take a brief walk to the Moorish Castle, the highlight of Silves. Most of the massive walls and the Gothic Cathedral built by Alfonso X of Castile are still intact. Below the remains of the castle is an impressive underground water reservoir that serves the town to this day.


Some free time is made available to explore the area before re-boarding your coach for the drive back to the pier.



Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking on cobblestone streets, and an uphill hike to the castle. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. A minibus is provided for guests unable to make the uphill walk to the castle. Cranes may be in place due to ongoing archaeological works inside the Silves Castle, but the beauty of this small city is still preserved. The tour sequence may vary. On Sundays and Public Holidays, the Archaeological Museum is closed. A visit to Caldas de Monchique will be substituted.
