Found in the heart of the Algarve region just 16km north of Faro, this fascinating town will offer you plenty to see and experience during your break. Stunning architecture sits between a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, lined with restaurants, bars and cafes while its historical sites have lured holidaymakers for decades. Whatever you crave – be it endless sunshine, delicious cuisine or an opportunity to delve into Portugal’s considerable past, Loule holidays are sure to provide.
If you’d rather skip the museums, the gypsy market held each Saturday is a must-see. Situated opposite the striking convent of St Antonio, this mass of colour and sound should be enough to firmly immerse you in the spirit of Loule – purchase a range of souvenirs from linen, lace and ceramics to leather goods and handmade clothing. If you’re on the hunt for food, head next door to the Arabian-style market for everything from fresh fish to fruit and vegetables.
