Alte alive

Visitors to the Algarve are being encouraged to take a trip into the real rural Algarve by taking part in the 16th annual Cultural Week of Alte.

The village of Alte, situated north of Albufeira in the municipality of Loulé, has extended the traditional cultural week, running from April 25 until May 1, to include activities that will continue for the entire month of May.

The festival will begin with a chance to taste some of the traditional flavours of the interior Algarve during a gourmet festival on April 25, while later in the week there will be a traditional Fado evening, theatre performances and activities for children to take part in.
