We took a drove to Monchique and went all the way up the mountain only to discover what was there, it was a roundabout. Partially in the clouds due to weather and elevation. Alferce is just one of the lovely elements to view in Monchique.

Lovely place to visit over Christmas. Looks like summertime would be great too, with an outdoor pool and lovely meandering streets.

A pretty, tidy village located in the hills but... we were in time to view an amazing tableau of Nativity Scenes beautifully crafted with working models and cleverly landscaped. Around the village were stuffed half size models of characters from The Nativity.

I think this place is overrated unless you like long drives. Not much to see. The town is quaint but in our perspective had very little to offer.

Everything was nice. The place, the food, the beds. And there is a lot to do in that part of Portugal.
