Joining Arts & Crafts tour will give you the real feeling of visiting the country through the eyes of artists and craftsmen. You’ll be surprised to see that in Algarve, globalization has not interfered with local traditions yet.
The day starts with a fantastic route: the route of cork in S. Brás de Alportel, a village in the Algarve in the foothills of Serra do Caldeirão, considered to be the best region of cork in the world. The visit to the cork’s factory, the walking tour throughout the woods of oak and cork trees and the taste of regional liqueurs and sweets is only the beginning of this allegory of colour and tastes. We should also have the opportunity to meet some craftsmen, see and buy their work.
Returning, the highlight will be the visit to the St Laurence’s Church, where the hand-painted tiles covering completely the interior, will leave you speechless.
Monday to Friday.
