Monchique is a Portuguese town in Faro district.
In the center of two great mountains (Fóia and Picota), the municipality of Monchique enters history with the presence of the Romans in Caldas de Monchique, attracted by the healing power of its waters. In the following centuries, the mountain was slowly populated.
The weaving of wool and linen, among other activities, contributed to the prosperity and development of Monchique, in such a way that in 1773 the town was promoted.
Possessing the richest forests in the Algarve, rich in cork oaks, eucalyptus, chestnut trees, among others, Monchique also has as a distinctive landmark this forest that makes its visitors known through safaris, zoological and natural parks and pedestrian expeditions.
