Portugal: Loule Market, Southern Algarve

There has been a market in Loule since medieval times and the current market is housed in and around a building dating back to the beginning of the 1900s. The impressive building was built in the Moorish style, reflecting the city’s North African heritage.

This is a traditional Portuguese market filled with the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Portugal. Seafood, port, piri-piri sauce, fresh meats, colourful fruits, lace, almonds, pottery and more can all be bought under one roof. On a Saturday the streets around the main market are taken over by the gypsy market which adds another dimension to your visit.

Definitely not a trip to miss if you are heading to the Southern Algarve this Summer!
