The city of Sao Brás is located in the centre
of the Algarve, between the hills and the sea. It is only a half an hour
to the coast, so tt is near to Tavira,
Loulé, Faro and Olhão. Its closeness to the Caldeirão and Barrocal
mountains, give Sao Brás the ideal weather conditions,
and it attracts many seeking a healthful climate.
The forests around provide the country
of Portugal with 60 % of its national cork production.
The local Mountain Fair is held here every year and is a traditional celebration
of food and crafts that lasts for 3 days.
We may also mention the Algarve’s Costume Museum, the local Church and
the beautiful “Verbena” Garden, where there are municipal swimming-pools
and a pleasant place to rest.
Visiting S. Brás is the best way to get to know and enjoy the marvels
and wonders of the Algarve.
