Monchique, often referred to as the Garden of the Algarve, is a mountainous region of high environmental quality, pleasant climate and strong traditions. The Serra de Monchique Tour is the ideal choice for anyone who wishes to enjoy a calm and relaxing tour while having fun riding a Segway, taking in unique details of nature, such as fresh, clean air, babbling brooks, wild flowers and chirping birds.
In the centre of town you can enjoy a breathtaking view from the São Sebastião park lookout; visit Monchique Igreja Matriz church, dating back to the early 16th century; and the Nossa Senhora do Desterro convent. You can also take in the narrow streets, admiring the whitewashed houses with their traditional chimneys, and of course a visit to the handicraft shops. You can also climb to the top of the mountain at Picota or up to the Algarve’s highest point above sea level, Fóia, from which you can survey the vast landscape that extends from Cabo de São Vicente (St. Vincent Cape) to Serra da Arrábida (Arrábida Mountain).
