Monchique Monchique

Attractively nestled on the verdant east side of Pico da Fóia, (alt 902m) this small town possesses a church known for its Manueline doorway. From the belvedere situated on the fair ground, there is an interesting view of the terraced quarters facing Alto da Picota (alt 773m).

Pico da Fóia - From the summit there are extensive views of bare ridges to the north and wooded heights to the west.
Caldas de Monchique - The water coming from this well is being used for rheumatic disorders and skin diseases.
