No one knows why this little settlement was deserted. Perhaps it was abandoned by the young generation because of its total isolation, or the cold damp winters finally made the people to leave, or perhaps as the older ones died out there was simply no one left to take their place. In the days of this settlement their movements were restricted to how far they could go by walking or with a donkey; the paths to the main building are barely wide enough for 1 donkey. In the barns there were stalls and iron rings for 5 cattle, and a pen for goats. It would be a full day trip to the nearest settlement to trade with shops for the provisions needed.

Tavira is one of the Algarve's most beautiful cities
with 27 churches, not all opened, remanents of the old wall, a Moorish castle, the Pego
do Inferno (scenic waterfall) and two rivers travelling through it. The
city lies on two sides of the river Gilão that flows lazily through out the
town. Its beaches are very long, up to 10 km with sugary white sand.
Unofficial nude beaches are hidden away on the far limits of the normal very long beaches. Often one has to walk 2 or 3 kilometres, 20 minutes, to come across the nude beaches. Usually there are no restaurants or facilities. But you have fine sandy beaches almost to yourself.

The Capital, Lisbon gets all dressed up for the Christmas Season and this is a wonderful time to visit. Stores and restaurants glisten with beautiful decorations and festive music. The main squares are adorned in fabulous twinkling lights awaiting Christmas visitors.
New Year celebrations in the Algarve have been increasing in popularity each year.
Have you been to the Silves Castle lately? If not you're in for a big surprise.
A jewel of the Alentejo Provence.....Do you know the amazing town of
Serpa? It is set in the central east part of the Provence of Alentejo
an easy 2 hours drive from central Algarve. Do not take the motorway or
you will miss the very scenic agricultural lands. Miles and miles of
cork, olive and sunflower plantations.
The extremely happy diners felt overwhelmed by the hospitality of Filipe at his Restaurante O AVENIDA
