Cacela – Faro
Opportunity to explore tourism business
CACELA AT ALAGARVE
Lose yourself in the streets of typical whitewashed houses and have a coffee in one of the several terraces you find there. Strolling through the village is an authentic trip to the past, not only because of the architectural work but also because it is closed to vehicle traffic. If you go there by car, you will have to leave it in the parking lot at the entrance to the village and walk through it.
Cacela Velha is history, tradition but also gastronomy. So be sure to try the “Ria Formosa” Natural Park, oysters or razor clams rice at Casa Velha.
If you are a fan of nature and looking for tranquility and modesty, this is undoubtedly a destination of choice.
When we visit Faro, we discover another reality in the Algarve, a region best known for its white sand beaches and warm waters. They walked through this region, since the Vlll century a. C. until today, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs and Portuguese … Let’s say that, here, “globalization” started a long time ago.
In addition to a diversified built and religious heritage, Faro is a municipality with a natural setting par excellence, bringing together conditions for the practice of nautical and nature tourism. The unique characteristics of Ria Formosa allow the practice of a set of nautical activities such as: kytesurf, canoeing, windsurfing, rowing, boat trips, bird watching among many others, providing the visitor with unique moments of sharing with nature.
The summer is undoubtedly the period of greatest activity, with thematic fairs, concerts, sports activities, exhibitions, festivals, among other initiatives.
Throughout the year, you can still buy handicrafts or other products at the various fairs and markets that are held monthly by the municipality.
In the evening, in a friendly, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, you can dance, listen to live music, enjoy a drink or a light meal in one of the several bars.
