Parque da Mina

This historically themed park includes an early 18th-century house, an old farm (with over one hundreds birds, ponies and dwarf goats), a recreated arbutus-berry distillery and a coal house. It is also possible to visit a decommissioned ore mine. Inside the house you can visit the office, the watch room (featuring dozens of clocks on the wall), the master bedroom (complete with period furniture) and the sewing room, among others. In the bathroom special mention goes to the bathtub which was imported from England in the 18th-century. Country culture is always present, even in the old motors of the Algarve: a D. Vitória and a Farmell tractor.
