Experience the special flora and fauna of the Algarve's protected nature reserves: Costa Vicentina, Fonte da Benémola, Ria Formosa, Sapal de Castro Marim e Vila Real de Santo António, Reserva Biogenética de Sagres, Rocha da Pena, ...
The Algarve has a wide range of different areas where Nature is still to be found in an essentially pure state. These are conveniently protected areas where animals and plants are kept safe from the dangers of human aggression. In the region’s natural parks and the areas designated as classified sites or places of ecological interest, certain species of fauna and flora have survived, which outside these areas are already close to extinction. There are also other species that, because of the region’s very special characteristics, have only found it possible to develop here and so represent an important part of the local heritage. These protected areas are visited by migratory birds and it is also possible to observe otters, tortoises, flamingos, storks, herons or the rare purple gallinules. In such places, we find enormous expanses of characteristic vegetation and geological curiosities. And we may also come across instances of an earlier human settlement of these areas, such as a basket-weaving workshop or a windmill. All of this wealth may be enjoyed by walking along marked footpaths, enjoying guided tours or visiting the information centres. These are forms of sustained tourism that enable visitors to get to know and experience the life of these small paradises, where the real keynote is the unaltered charm of nature.

Rural village near Loulé with the ruins of a Moorish Castle
Salir is a parish (freguesia) in the municipality (concelho) of Loulé. This agricultural settlement was elevated to a village (vila) in 1993. It is very likely that the area was inhabited by Celts and Romans, although there is not a lot of hard evidence to support this. Salir itself was occupied by the Moors in the 12th Century, when the castle Castelo de Salir was erected to protect the southern Algarve against the Christian re-conquest. Up to now, it has only been possible to excavate some of the foundations of the castle. The agricultural produce in this region includes cork, carob beans, (alfarroba), figs and almonds. The schnapps (medronho) distilled from the fruits of the arbutus tree is a very popular digestive. Hunting is an important activity, and the restaurants in the area specialize in various types of game stews.
