Cachopo is considered the most typical village of the northeast Algarve. Its typicality comes from the houses, with their shale or whitewashed walls, the community ovens, threshing floors and furnaces, the “lacy” chimneys and the windmills, some in ruins and others converted into dwellings.

Another characteristic of this parish in the municipality of Tavira are buildings dating back to prehistoric times and commonly known as palheiros. Made of stone with roofs of thatch or reeds, they are used to store animal feed.
