today was our last day in the Algarve region of Portugal, there is so much to see I am sure we will be back! On the hill behinds us is the Castle of Silves, built-in the 12th and 13th centuries, and beside it on the hill the Silves Cathedral, one of the few remaining Gothic monuments in the Algarve.
we found mostly quiet pedestrian streets near the castle and cathedral. I am guessing, since it was about 11 am on Sunday most people were either at Church, but it could have been some were hiding from the cool windy day….
we wondered back to Portimao, and the beachs of Praia de Rocha
Portimao is a lovely seaside town, that is very quiet at this time of the year. I have been assured by my cousins that during the summer months it is bustling with activity. Today the only activity on the beach was the wind and the crashing waves….
We are off the Seville, so I guess we will have to come back another time to check out the beaches…
