    Monchique Locals

    May 18, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    This is a town where we saw real Portuguese people going about their day: men drinking coffee in the town square, people shopping at the market, a group of 5 women sweeping the church, and a sweet little lady selling Mendronho, sort of a high-test liquor that she distills herself. It is made from arbutus, also called a strawberry tree, but it doesn't taste like a strawberry.Read more

    Nice small town little up the mountain. Make a walk through the small streets. By some Medrohno at the market place :-). Drive up the mountain and have something to eat (Piri Piri Chicken) with great view.

    Zonsondergang kijken

    September 6, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Met 8 jeeps door heuvels en bergen naar Monchique om naar de zonsondergang te kijken en daarna uitgebreid gaan dineren. Het was een awesome avond. Sunrise and moonlight excursie van TUI is een echte aanrader. Georganiseerd door Portitours team. Met speciale dank aan onze chauffeur Simone/
