About the area:
Loulé is a traditional Portuguese market town, and is one of the most popular town 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. The town is located just 18 km northwest of Faro.
Loulé is famous throughout Portugal for hosting the biggest and most flamboyant Brazilian-style carnival each year before Easter. At carnival time the town is transformed into a mesmerising party of colour, music and dancing. The event attracts people from all over the Algarve who come to watch the processions and join in the festive atmosphere.
Loulé sits 12 km from the coastline of the 'Golden Triangle', an area which encompasses the luxury resorts of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago.
The centre of the town is steeped in history. Its thirteenth century castle is built on an area previously settled by the Romans and its main church, Igreja Matriz de S.Clemente, was built on the site of an ancient mosque and also dates back to the thirteenth century. Loulé market hall (Mercado Municipal) is a striking landmark and an excellent example of classic Moorish architecture. It re-opened in early 2007 after a long period of renovation. Browse the town’s cobbled streets and you will see how Loulé has gained a reputation as the craft capital of the Algarve. Local handicrafts include ceramics, copperware, leatherwear, embroidered linen and tableware, quilts and lace, many of which can be purchased at the colourful Saturday gypsy market.
