If you’re honest… Are you still getting over the shock of finding out that 2021 is going to be yet another year of no summer festivals, concerts or parties?
We are, too… But we have some good news for you! Art and culture are taking on a whole new look.
Despite the restrictions, you’ll find the Algarve still chock-full of (regulation-following) projects so remarkable you’ll forget all about the pandemic.
A must-see? A non-profit based in the old beer factory in Faro old town. Home to the Recreationa n ultural Association of Musicians, this is where you’ll find the SIGA project, which was put together to “unlockdown” culture.
A project filled with various events, expect to see photography exhibitions, stand-up comedy sessions, tribute bands playing live and even brunches with a live jazz band. Find out more here!
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life while still making the most of a multicultural, eclectic dynamic, Faro is the destination for you. Harun Main Street is the perfect flat for a stay with friends, whereas our Formosa View accommodation comfortably sleeps a family of 4.
40 km from Faro lies picture-perfect Tavira and its deeply founded fishing traditions. The perfect place for a quiet, culture-rich holiday, the city is packed full of must-see activities and initiatives run by Tavira Municipal Council alongside a range of charities and non-profit organisations. Concerts are held in Churches every Saturday, and art exhibitions can be found scattered across the city. You can even leave your kids at the Life Science Centre to be entertained for an afternoon for some time to yourselves.
To cool off on hotter nights, make sure you pop into Clube de Tavira. Check out the live performances of Latin rhythms set to a jazz soundtrack on their very own Tropical Terrace.
Now that we’ve given you more reasons to visit the Algarve beyond our breathtaking beaches and world-class cuisine, what are you waiting for to book your trip?
