Estoi

Located ten kilometres from Faro, the village of Estoi has several places of interest, such as the Roman Ruins of Milreu. At this important archaeological site, you can see, for example, a large farmhouse which was transformed into a luxury building in the 3rd Century. The Milreu Ruins were discovered in 1877 and were classified as a National Monument in 1910.

A year before, the Estoi Palace was opened, the most important example of Romanticism in the Algarve. This building, in rococo style, initially belonged to José Francisco da Silva, the 1st Viscount of the village. In 1977 it was declared a Property of Public Interest and bought by the Faro municipality ten years later. It was recently restored and adapted into a pousada.
