Loulé

Its mild climate, natural beauty, golf courses and good hotel and restaurant facilities make the area a favorite destination for many tourists in the warmer months. Its beautiful beaches, many of them with the Blue Flag, and the famous Vilamoura Marina stand out. Enjoy the visit and discover the architecture and local history: enter the Church of São Clemente, pass by the Convento da Graça and the Castle of Loulé and visit the Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição. Don't miss the ruins of the Castle of Salir and the Roman ruins of Cerro da Vila. The typical cuisine of the area allows you to taste the famous chicken "cerejada", the "cabidela" rooster, the lamb leg in the pan, the wild boar "feijoada" and, for dessert, the "xerém", "cavacas" and "carrasquinhas". The biggest festivity of the year is the famous Carnival of Loulé, which takes place over three days and attracts hundreds of people to the streets of the city.
