LOULÉ

Loulé the largest district in the Algarve, Portugal

Loulé is an important rural administrative and active market town. The weekly fair attracts tourists from all over the Algarve. The town's landmark is the market hall (Mercado municipal) which re-opened in early 2007 after a long period of renovation. Its architecture has a classic moorish style influence. Today you can only see some remains of the Arab castle and the Gothic Church of S. Clemente. The town is nevertheless worth a visit, especially the old part and its surroundings

The annual Carnival in February with itsa colourful procession around the centre of the city is considered one of the best in Portugal.

In the summer enjoy the White Night, a night street party in the city centre decorated in white and where visitors from all over the Algarve come to join in, dressed in white.

Loulé also host a Halloween parade at night, where everyone participates in the fun “horror”.
