Portugal's Algarve is one of the most popular places for a sunny holiday getaway, as you're almost guaranteed good weather, even better beaches and picture-perfect villages and towns. Holidays to the Algarve are particularly ideal for families, with many attractions and activities that cater especially for children. These include water, amusement and marine parks, as well as zoos.
Whoever you're enjoying the Algarve region with, Alcantarilha holidays can offer all of the above – and much more besides. Alcantarilha is a quiet town with a peaceful atmosphere, making it ideal for really switching off and appreciating this beautiful part of Portugal.
Sitting inland from the Algarve coast, Alcantarilha is the perfect place to relax and unwind. With its laid-back pace, a holiday in Alcantarilha is the perfect retreat from the bustle of the coast and its lively resort towns.
The old town is where you can observe locals going about their daily routines. Whether that's friends catching up over a coffee in the cafés or chatting outside their white-washed houses, you'll feel totally immersed in traditional Portuguese life.
The main point of interest here is the bell tower of Igreja do Carmo church and its chapel. A fascinatingly-macabre place, the Capela dos Ossos is filled with the skulls and bones of over 1,000 monks. They line the walls and ceilings of this 15th-century chapel, creating a unique display that really must be seen.
