Description

Loulé is a traditional Portuguese market town, and is one of the most popular day trips of the central Algarve region. Visitors are drawn to Loule, as it boasts a characterful historic centre, a lively market and a genuine Portuguese atmosphere.

The focal point of Loule is the Arabic inspired covered market, and inside are stalls selling local produce, fresh fish and regional handicrafts. Surround the market are busy shopping streets, tree-lined plazas and a warren of medieval alleys, lined with craftsmen’s workshops and traditional houses. Found within the compact historic centre is the ancient castle, the gothic Igreja Matriz and the Convento do Espírito Santo.
