Monchique is a unique area of the Algarve, located inland. Monchique is a Portuguese village in the district of Faro, which is in the Serra de Monchique, a mountain range full of chestnut groves and fields of wild flowers that become particularly beautiful in early spring, with the yellow splendour of the mimosa bushes.
Attractions include a historic town centre, views from the two peaks of Foia and Picota, hiking, bird watching and biking. There are hot sulphur springs, with baths and health spas six kilometres south in 'Caldas de Monchique' (Spring of Monchique). Eucalyptus, cork oak, oranges, lemons, honey, olive oil, chestnuts, scissor chairs made from chestnut wood, black pork and black pork ham and sausages are the chief products.
The natural mineral water of Monchique is born from the depths of the earth, on a slope located in the tectonic valley that divides the Serra de Monchique, and is one of the highlights of the region. Água de Monchique has been referred to as “holy” water and is the most alkaline water in Portugal.
