Places to go

“Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.” Paul Theroux 

As we grow this blog – it can be easy to miss some posts – so we thought it would be useful to create a page related specifically to places to go and things to see across the Algarve.

We will continue to add more links on this page as we continue travelling and exploring the wonders of the Algarve. We hope that you enjoy these – and please let us know where you would like to see featured in the future. Just click on any of the links below to be taken straight to the relevant post.

Happy exploring!
