“Learn about the history Silves and the history of the Algarve region: The Rio Arade was long an important route into the interior for the Phoenicians, Greeks and Carthaginians, who wanted the copper and iron action in the southwest of the country. With the Moorish invasion from the 8th century, the town gained prominence due to its strategic hilltop, riverside site. From the mid-11th to the mid-13th centuries, Shelb (or Xelb), as it was then known, rivalled Lisbon in prosperity and influence: according to the 12th-century Arab geographer Idrisi, it had a population of 30, 000, a port and shipyards, and ‘attractive buildings and well-furnished bazaars’.”

“Coffee-restaurant with live music, located next to the Castle of Silves. Pleasant space combining comfort with the sound of salsa, jazz and bossa nova. During the day you can sit on the terrace eating some snacks and in the evening try traditional well-cooked food.”

Lake
“This publicly accessible water spring is barely known by tourists and mostly visited by locals. The crystal clear water is stored in a dam reservoir of about 1,5 meters deep. This means that you can swim in the fresh water. The remainder of the water is absorbed by a nature area into the Arade river. You can bring your own picnic things and use the many picnic tables. Barbecues are permitted. Tip! A similar, surprising, public and free water spring area can be found in the cute village of Alte.”

Stadhuis
“Silves is een mooie Portugese stad die ooit de hoofdstad van de Algarve was. Een van de eerste bezienswaardigheden die bezoekers zien als ze Silves binnengaan, is de Rio Arade, die langs de zuidelijke kant van de stad loopt. Het lot van Silves is nauw verbonden geweest met de rivier, tijdens het Moorse tijdperk was de rivier aanzienlijk breder waardoor boten over de lengte naar Portimão en de zee konden varen. Toen de rivier dichtslibde, nam de welvaart van Silves af en werd de stad teruggebracht tot een bevolking van minder dan 500 mensen.”
