SILVES WALK - 2 hours - 1 to 20 guests

The Beauty of Silves and a Taste of History!


Join me for a friendly walk through time and a visit of the beautiful town where I live. Silves has a picturesque setting and an interesting story to tell. It was the Moorish (or Islamic) capital of the Algarve and other civilisations – Roman, Visigothic and Christian –  also left their mark.

We meet at the river and go up the hill to the castle. Our walk gives a taste of the little streets and an overview of the main sights. We pass the Roman bridge, the docks, the city walls and gate, the square “Praça do Municipio”, the market hall and the town hall. We will enter and visit the archaeological museum and the Cathedral.  On the way we pass some places to eat and drink and I will show you one of my favourite hidden gems.

This experience ends at the top of the town next to the castle. From here you can visit the castle by yourself or have an easy walk back down to the meeting point. You may also decide to have a meal or stay in Silves a little longer.

Please note that the above itinerary is a guideline and can be adapted (or shortened) to your needs. If you prefer a gentler walk than I can drive you up to the castle (in my jeep) and we can do the walk downhill. It is also possible to combine the walk with other activities that I offer, for example a lunch, a river cruise or a hill safari.
