An endless variety of decorated fireplaces, carefully crafted in a filigree of whitewashed stone and art. Wide spaces in which it is possible to rediscover the meaning of loneliness and to listen to the silence of nature. With all this and more, the municipality of Loulé is a place of sunshine and colors, fun and excitement.
