Silves Golf resort offers a rural setting but is just a stones throw from the historic town of Silves.
Silves is a charming town steeped in history everywhere you look with lots of reminders of it’s affluent and bold past as a Moorish capital. Silves is also a pretty town littered with orange and lemon trees sitting on the banks of the Rio Arade.
The importance of Silves lies in the fact that it was the main access to the inland areas of the Algarve because of its river location, although the river is now too silted up for large vessels to use. The most prominent monument is Castelo de Silves, which is now the best preserved castle in the Algarve. The castle and the Cathedral beside it are the first buildings you see as you approach Silves, as they sit on the hilltop above the town.
