Roman, Arabic and medieval flavour
Stacy & Geoff & Mary

With a roman, Arabic and medieval flavour, Silves was a great discovery for us.

That day we pick up Geoff and Mary and drove along the countryside (roof off) till Silves. We only knew that the castle was one of the best preserved of the area 8 and you know Stacy´s passion for castles lol is not far away mine ;-) !) But we founded a city with more to offer, even if indications were not great.

Visit the castle, cathedral and church walk along the little streets? and visit of course the Portugal cross ?

    This looks like a great little place to tour, too bad I missed it while in the Algarve. I was interested to see Geoff & Mary here, I visited them in Feb./04 !!
