"Excursion 1: From Alcautim to Tavira" Top 5 Page for this destination Algarve Favorite Tip by Carmela71

Algarve General: 38 reviews and 58 photos


Favorite thing: Once we arrived to Alcoutim to visit the castle, what most impressed us where the views of the sister city (well they were on wars for ages, but I guess they get on well now hehehe) at Spain, Sanlucar de Guadiana, the views from the Portugal side were incredible!

All closes from13.00 till 14.00, so we decided to enjoy some of the grilled chicken you could smell all over the place!

As usual what is left of the castle is the walls and you ahve to pay 2,50 euros. With this it allows you to enter in the following 7 days to certain museums around, but it was not on our plans, so we left it for another occasion. The best of the castle were the views and a little museum with plans of the roman villas we just missed.

And way down to Albufeira
