Loulé

The district of Loulé abounds in tiny villages like Vale do Lobo, Salir, Barranco do Velho, Alte or Quinta do Lago, each of which a perfect example of traditional Algarve building styles.
Although we cannot be sure of two first settled in Loulé, Roman remains have been found and the town walls, which weave in and out of the houses probably date back to the Arab occupation in the X Century.

The traditional houses around the wall have been restored and are now the Municipal Museum and an arts centre.
The XIII Century Parish Church near to the historic heart of the town and the renaissance Capela das Almas. In the centre of Loulé, near the market, tradition is retained and craftsmen work in their doorways, working on harnesses, beating copper and weaving baskets.
