When I was staying in Faro in southern Portugal, Gwen McCauley of Algarve Experiences, offered to put together a tailor made Algarve experience for me to give me a taster of the area. First on the itinerary was Olhao for a wander around the markets and the town.

Next it was Fuseta.

Lunch was atÂ Restaurante O Monteiro in Cabanas.Â I had an enormous dish of chicken cooked with vegetables which was delicious and at a price of 8.5 Euro puts many gourmet restaurants to shame for flavour and value for money.
It was dry enough after lunch to have a walk along the prom and beach in Cabanas.

I wondered if Gwen had seen my Pinterest board on Sculptures in Europe when she showed me the plant sculptures in Cacela Velha.
