It is said that the Serra de Monchique is the garden of the Algarve. Outlined between the two highest points of the region, Fóia (902 m) and Picota (774 m), it offers the freshness and moisture produced by the crystal clear rivers that run along it, as well as diverse and luxuriant vegetation that surprises those who come from the hot beaches of the coast.

Starting from the Islamic period, this place, known as Munt Sâqir, which means Sacred Mountain, prospered due to the manufacture of products such as honey and strawberry-tree spirit.
