Hotel
“Travel through lovely Serra de Monchique, along eucalyptus and mimosas to reach Mount Fóia, the highest point in the Agarve (902m). Spectacular views on a clear day. Have lunch at restaurant Luar da Fóia on the way down.”

“A land of wooded hills, fragrant orchards and natural springs, the area around the town of Monchique invites you to put all thoughts of sand and beaches temporarily aside and appreciate the beauty and tranquillity of rural Algarve. Be aware that it is a few kilometers to travel, so expect a full day”

Restaurant
“One of my favorite restaurants in Algarve, situated in the green lush hills of Monchique. Some 15-20 minutes by car from Lagos in wonderful serpentine roads. Here I usually eat leg of pork or whole roasted lamb. Enjoy!”

Restaurant
“This restaurant is inspired by the local traditions, unified by the Monchique mountains. In the menu, the cabbage stew, the Monchique style stuffed squids, the chicken with almonds and the stewed goat really stand out.”

Cemetery
“Monchique, één van de hoogst gelegen dorpjes van Portugal, ligt ongeveer vijftien kilometer landinwaarts in de Algarve. Het staat, met zijn natuurlijke bron, vooral bekend als wellness-oord. Het gezellige centrum heeft door de vele smalle straatjes en pittoreske dorpscafé's nog een ouderwetse sfeer. Het is een mooi dorp met veel 18e en 19e-eeuwse huizen. Het centrale plein is erg sfeervol met zijn fonteinen en mooie bloemperken. Alleen al de rit naar boven, door de prachtige natuur (die zich gelukkig snel hersteld na de recente bosbranden), is een bezoek aan Monchique meer dan waard In Monchique en omgeving zijn veel wandelroutes te vinden. De gemeente Monchique heeft een zestal zeer gevarieerde wandelingen uitgezet. Routes zijn verkrijgbaar bij het bureau voor toerisme in het centrum van de stad.”
