General Property Description

This plot is located in a small urban development only less than 5 km. from the historic (old capital) town of Silves.

General Info about Silves:
The deep green foliage of orange trees in fertile valleys. The blue sea and the fast paced life of an international seaside resort. The picturesque charm of houses surrounded buy almond and carob trees. The broad sweep of hills that are a haven for ramblers and nature lovers. These are among the attractions of Silves district, a holiday destination where it is a pleasure simply to be alive
Between orange groves and hills
The vast triangle defined by Silves. São Bartolomeu de Messines and Armação de Pêra is a land of fruit trees and vegetable gardens, of small villages where the houses have whitewashed walls, with doors and windows picked out in blue, and ornate chimneys that resemble a more solid version of lace. A walk through this region is a chance to appreciate the glowing colours of oranges, the green foliage of almond trees, the broad crowns of carob trees and the fig trees that are often bent right to the ground.

To the north lie the hills, smooth and round as pebbles covered with typically Mediterranean vegetation consisting of evergreen oaks, arbutus-berry trees, oaks, cistus and gorse. In addition many other species of flora that have adapted to the poor schisty soils and harsh climate are interesting from a botanical point of view. In a landscape of heat and light, the Arade and Funcho dams open like cool windows and the scattered white houses of villages offer welcome relief the near desert conditions in the hills. The area as a whole is home to a variety of animal life, including approximately 80 species of nesting birds.


Places of Interest

São Bartolomeu de Messines
Situated in a long, fertile valley, some of Sao Bartolomeu's streets such as Rua do Remexido,. which is spanned by an arch - retain the charm of a typical Algarve town. The poet João de Deus (1830-1896), whose reader "Cartilha Maternal" was widely used to teach reading and writing at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century,. was born here. The two houses in which he lived are indicated by plaques.
Main church - The original church was built in the 16th century, in a transitional style between Manueline and Renaissance. To this was added at the beginning of the 18th century a baroque facade. The interior is made up of three naves with round arches supported by Solomon pillars. The triumphal arch of the main chapel has non-twisted triple columns. The two collateral chapels have rimmed Manueline vaults, while the arches of the side chapels proper already show the influence of the later Renaissance style. There are fine gilded and cared retables and the base relief polychrome pediments with their baroque decoration, are worthy of attention. The elegant pulpit with its stone staircase is made of local marble and is
a small masterpiece of baroque workmanship. Other objects in the church, including the table and basin in the sacristy and the font, are fashioned of the same marble. The church also boasts a fine collection of 16th to 18th century statues, pride of place in which goes to the pieces dedicated to the Virgin Mary: Nossa Senhora da Conceição (Our Lady of the Conception).
