Castelo de Loulé

As in several villages in the Algarve, Loulé also accuses the presence of various peoples: Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans and Moors, who took over the city in 715. The Christian reconquest took place in 1249 and in 1268 the fortress was rebuilt and expanded, being rebuilt in the 16th century. Currently, there are some remains on Rua da Barbacã, Largo da Matriz and Rua Rainha Dona Leonor.
