Set within the ‘golden triangle’ within the Algarve, Almancil is close to fabulous beaches, the Ria Formosa National Park, and the golf and water sport facilities this area is rightly famous for. The town boasts a choice of restaurants serving local specialties and international cuisine and is an excellent base from which to explore the region. Located just to the east, in the nearby village of São Lourenço you will find a church that is an excellent example of Algarvian architecture and covered inside with beautiful 18th century ceramic tiles. The São Lourenço Cultural Centre is in the street leading up to the church, and here you will find regular classical music events and art exhibitions.
