Monchique is a small town located in the western Algarve, 20 minutes away from the city of Portimão. With over 6.000 inhabitants, Monchique breathes out a peaceful quietness embraced by the green and brown landscape. Its streets are steep and narrow, with houses nicely painted in white, stone sidewalks, little corners and earth terraces. Last time I went there it was still winter time, but the day was bright and sunny and invited us for a walk.
