The Algarve has a lot of possibilities to make nice day trips. If you want to see some culture or do something active, it’s all possible. The excavation of Milreu and the palace of Estoi are, close to Faro, within only one kilometer of one another. Milreu is a Roman settlement and it is assumed that it was an extensive estate of a wealthy Roman noble. However it could also have been a health resort because of the ruins of swimming pools. The palace of Estoi is from the 18th century and build in rococo style. It is now a Pousada (hotel) but still worth a visit. One of the most beautiful churches of Portugal is the church of Saõ Lourenço, near Almansil. The church is completely covered with azulejo’s of 1730 and the tiling of the walls, ceiling and dome is a true piece of art.
