Termas de Monchique


Close to the blue sky and the green hills of the “serra” lies Caldas de Monchique, with its impressive collection of restored buildings and the only thermal spa in the Algarve. History tells us that that the Romans bathed in Monchique, benefiting from the excellent waters from the thermal springs. The sodic waters of Caldas de Monchique are rich in fluoride and bicarbonate, and are particularly suitable for the treatment of respiratory and muscular-skeletal conditions; in the field of beauty treatments they contain great powers of hydration. A square shaded by trees and flanked by attractive buildings dating from the end of the th and beginning of the th centuries epitomises the calm and relaxing atmosphere of Caldas de Monchique. It is well worth visiting the little glazed pavilion where the bubbling spring water gushes out, and the chapel of Santa Teresa (St. Theresa), which contains a series of th century tiled panels telling the story of the saint’s life. The biggest attraction of Caldas de Monchique, however, is the extensive wooded park that rises up the hillside. Dappled patterns of light and shade, the gentle murmur of the river and trees that are hundreds of years old make the perfect backdrop for a gentle stroll or a picnic at the stone tables provided.
