Excellent 4875m2 plot with wonderful sea and country views, with a ruin which can either be renovated or a project which would accommodate a 300m2 villa + 60m2 covered terrace, pool and perimeter walls. It would also be eligible for a 2000m2 rural tourism project.
Loulé is famous throughout Portugal for hosting the biggest and most flamboyant Brazilian-style carnival each year before Easter. At carnival time the town is transformed into a mesmerising party of colour, music and dancing. The event attracts people from all over the Algarve who come to watch the processions and join in the festive atmosphere.
Loulé sits 12 km from the coastline of the “Golden Triangle”, an area which encompasses the luxury resorts of Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago and the town of Almancil. It is an active market town which, despite having developed commercially, has retained its traditional charm and reputation as the craft capital of the Algarve.
The centre of the town is steeped in history. Its thirteenth century castle is built on an area previously settled by the Romans and its main church, Igreja Matriz de S.Clemente, was built on the site of an ancient mosque and also dates back to the thirteenth century. Loulé market hall (Mercado Municipal) is a striking landmark and an excellent example of classic Moorish architecture. It re-opened in early 2007 after a long period of renovation.
