Just 15km from Portimao on the Algarve, in southern Portugal, Silves is a charming town on the banks of the Arade River.
Packed with historical monuments to remind you of the town´s affluent past as a Moorish capital, Silves attracts visitors from all over the world, eager to explore this beautiful part of the Portuguese coast. The Castelo de Silves is perhaps the best preserved castle in the Algarve, with its red stone walls overlooking the sleepy streets of the town below.
The main square in Silves, the Praça do Municipio boasts beautiful gardens and is the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the town. Silves is not the resort for you if you're looking for a lively holiday on the coast, instead it's the perfect location, within easy reach of the beaches and Algarve tourist attractions, to enjoy the real Algarve.
