Welcome to Silves

Silves is an attractive town of jumbling orange rooftops scattered above the banks of the Rio Arade. It boasts one of the best-preserved castles in the Algarve, attractive red-stone walls and winding, sleepy backstreets on a hillside. Not much happens around town, but it’s a good base if you’re after a less hectic, non-coastal Algarvian pace. It’s 15km northeast of Portimão
