Silves The Essential
Interesting
All that remains of the old Xelb, the Moorish capital of the Algarve, with its numerous mosques, whose magnificence used to eclipse that of Lisbon, are the high sandstone walls of the castle, situated in the acropolis above the completely white town. The town has preserved its original look with its cobbled mountain streets, which have to be explored on foot.
