Barranco do Velho



Barranco do Velho is a small village situated in the amazing Caldeirão Mountain, in the inland Algarve region, nearby the border with the Alentejo’s region, in a landscape completely different from the touristic Algarve of golden beaches and crystalline waters.

This is a region of ancient cork industry tradition, with the landscape dominated by cork, holm-oak and strawberry trees.

In the top of the hill is situated the rustic Church built in 1944, with a typical Algarve style, from where one has an astonishing view.

Barranco Velho is also known for the high quality of its typical “Aguardente de Medronho” (a liquor made of arbutus-berry fruit) that can be bought in the picturesque handicraft shop in the village.
