São Bras de Alportel is a little town, characterised by the tranquil, unhurried lifestyle of the friendly local population. The market town of São Brás, 12kms from Loulé, has a central square surrounded by cafes and small streets. It is convenient for a variety of shops, restaurants, museums, ruins and other amenities. The town is surrounded by a ring of hills that look out onto the sea and the mountains. Low white houses, typical of popular architecture stand alongside more substantial buildings, their facades decorated with tiles, ornate stonework and cast iron verandas. São Brás has a covered market-place selling fresh fish, meat, fruit and vegetables and a monthly outside market. This area is relatively unaffected by tourism. This is the perfect place to sample the real Algarve.
