Concelho de Loulé: Salir
Located on two hills on the way from Loulé to Alte, the village of Salir has still almost maintained its original state. The larger and newer part is assembled around the parish church and the nearby water tower, visible from afar.
Salir: Village Street
Our way downhill through the village surrounding the parish church to the western hill of the castle. In the bachground you can see the rock formation of Rocha de Pena.
From the chapel the paved way leads uphill to the remainders of the the Moorish castle. The way , shadowed by a rich vegetation, leads around the castle hill along the old wall to a place, where the basements of the Moorish walls have been uncovered.
We follow the village street from the newer part of Salir to the castle hill in the West. The piittoresque little chapel is located at the border of the old part of Salir.
