Adega do Cantor
The Adega do Cantor or Winery of the Singer is situated in Guia, a few kilometres northwest of Albufeira, at the top of Quinta do Miradouro from which stunning views of the surrounding vineyards and coast line can be seen, and is by far the most famous one. The co-owner is Sir Cliff Richards, although it isn’t the main reason why it is famous: since 2004 several medals have been received. This tour gives you the opportunity to experience, along 2 hours, the vineyards and the winery at Quinta do Miradouro and enjoy a tasting of Sir Cliff Richard’s award winning Vida Nova & Onda Nova wines, which are vinified, matured and bottled on the estate.
Cost (visit and wine taste): 25€ p.p. – total 100€. (Min. 4 persons)
Cabo de São Vicente and Cordoama
Cabo de São Vicente (the Cape of Saint Vincent) is the most southwesterly extremity of Europe and up until the 14th century, the end of the known world. The jagged cliffs rise over 60 meters from the ferocious seas and high above guarding the busy shipping lines is one of Europe’s brightest lighthouses that can be seen 60 miles away.
In this tour you will visit Cabo Sao Vicente, Sagres fort (3€ fee in case of entrance), the working fishing harbour, and Cordoama point view, also a very popular surfing beach.
The small town centre of Sagres has a ramshackle appearance but is quite in keeping the unique vibe of the region, where you can laid back and enjoy the tradicional cafés and restaurants.
Sagres and Cabo Sao Vicente is not a destination for all, certain visitors may consider the region barren and devoid of sights, while other tourists will be captivated by the stunning and dramatic scenery, although it is in one of the most natural and non touristic area of Portugal: Costa Vicentina (Vicentine Coast Natural Park) aka the Algarve’s wild western coast.
Cost: 20€ p.p. – total 80€. (Min. 4 persons)
