Silves is a historic and delightful town, which was originally the ancient capital of the Algarve. Under the Moors (9-12th century), Silves was a major defensive stronghold and important trading centre, with boats sailing down the Arade River and crossing to North Africa.
Today, Silves is peaceful and unhurried, but remnants of this illustrious past can be seen scattered throughout the town. This includes the imposing red brick castle, the impregnatable town walls, and the Gothic cathedral, built on the site of a magnificent mosque. For visitors, Silves is a joy to explore and has a distinctly Portuguese ambience, with open-air cafes, cobbled streets and a relaxed pace of life.
Along with its rich history and fascinating attractions, Silves has a scenic location, set along the banks of the slow-flowing Rio Arade and within the rolling hills of the Algarve countryside.
Silves is a highly recommended destination to visit during your holiday to the Algarve, and this article will provide a 1-day tour, tourist information and travel information.
About the Project
A jewel of the Algarve, Silves proves that the region is far more than idle fun in the sun. Silves was originally the ancient capital of the region, during the time that it was under Moorish rule from the 9th to the 12th century. With its inland and riverside location, it was a major defensive stronghold and an important trading center. Now Silves has the rhythm of a typical Portuguese village, unhurried and not bothered by the bustle of mass tourism.
But still, there are signs of the illustrious past throughout the municipality: the striking redbrick castle, the strong town walls, the Gothic cathedral, many openair cafés, cobblestone streets, and a relaxed pace. Silves also has a prime location, on the scenic banks of the slow-flowing Rio Arade. The region’s beaches are only a short drive away.

The Exit Plan
Portuguese Golden Visa
The Golden Visa Program is one of the fastest and more reliable choices for foreign investors or third-country nationals who want to be granted a residence permit, through investment activities conducted within Portugal territory. The main benefits of the program are the various choices of investments, a quick and unbureaucratic procedure and, lastly, a minimal requirement for residency. This makes the portuguese Golden Visa the fastest-growing investment immigration program in Europe.
Who is golden Visa intended for
The Portuguese Golden Visa Program is intended for all third-country nationals who exercise an investment activity, either personally or through a company incorporated in Portugal or in another EU State and having a permanent establishment in Portugal.
Why invest in Portugal
The Portugal Golden Visa program has proven to be one of the most popular schemes in Europe, attracting many investors due to its flexibility and the benefits provided.
Since its launching in 2012, the Golden Visa program has been actively promoted internationally by the Portuguese Government, allowing the investors to obtain a residency permit, which may include its family.
Real Estate Investment
The property market in Portugal like many southern European countries suffered from the credit crisis and prices in 2015 are typically 20% – 30% below their peak. However there is a clear turn in the market and property above the €500,000 investment visa limit is seeing huge demand particularly in the capital, Lisbon.
Investors buying into the real estate market in Portugal for the Golden Visa now have excellent prospects for capital gain in the coming years. Advice is recommended for serious buyers as there are clear distinctions between typical vacation homes on the coast in Portugal and city properties such as Lisbon.
