Carnival is coming!

O Carnaval está a caminho!

Carnival is a sign of holidays or a long weekend, take these days to travel to the Algarve to rest and spend some relaxed moments with your family and take the opportunity to get to know better the Algarve traditions in this season.

Masks, floats and samba schools get out on the streets all over the Algarve. Here are our suggestions:

Paderne Carnival

Loulé Carnival

With more than 100 years of existence, in Loulé is celebrated the most famous Carnival of the region. “O Circo Selfie” (Selfie Circus) is the theme of Loulé Carnival, this year focusing on making this event more environmentally sustainable using 100% biodegradable paper cups, reusable up to 4 or 5 times and compostable. The aim is to reduce the use of disposable plastic. The parades are held from March the 3rd to March the 5th at Avenida José da Costa Mealha from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
