Algarve| Which is best Sagres or Silves?
If you only had one week to explore the Algarve, Southern Portugal, you’d be hard pushed to fit it all in… There’s Faro and the magnificent Parque Natural da Ria Formosa. So perhaps a day of roman floor mosiacs, moorish oil lamps and the views of the Sé from the cathedral’s bell tower..followed by a cruise of the nature reserve on the lagoon?
Or you could consider heading out like we did towards the Sagres peninsula, a short drive on the N125 from Lagos. Visiting the imposing fort, stand over the pebble wind compass and be amazed at the isolated headland with it’s rocky crags and crashing waves.. Windblown doesn’t do it justice! but I guess if you arrive on the 31st November you can’t expect to enjoy the summer warmth of the waters off the Martinhal beach..
