Algarve is especially the perfect place away from urban modernism with natural freshness on the Atlantic coast. Moreover, historical sites such as the Moorish castle of Silves, the fortress of Sagres are known for their attractiveness and uniqueness. The cuisine is as “fresh” as the seafood from its crystalline waters. One can also enjoy regional specialties: clams with coriander and the tasty almond pastries.
