Wonderful pit-stop on our Jeep Safari, incredible lemon meringue pie and the classic pastel de nata, lots of choice of tea as well and stunning view to boot in Portguals voted most classically Portuguese village in the Algarve. Go immediately!

What a great place to stop in, lunch or a coffee n cake. If you like Honey or figs (who doesn’t) then this the place to visit. Do not leave without purchasing the Fig Liquor (49% proof) it’s quite a tipple.

We stop here to take a quick snack (like a burguer or hot dog), but only sandwiches or toast. The aspect of the cakes was amazing, but it was lunch time, so we did not try this options. Enjoy
