The Town

Alcantarilha is a town that for many years I have driven past on the N125 which use to the main road to get to the West of the Algarve.  Recently I have taken the advice of many who live in the area and visited this charming town.  Alcantarilha became a town in 1999 when its official population reached 3000 people.  Alcantarilha is soaked in history.

There are three important church buildings in the town: Misericordia (Mercy) Church, Our Lady of Carmo Chapel and the Parish Church, Our Lady “da Conceição” (16th Century) is famous for its rare 'Capela dos Ossos' (Chapel of Bones) an interesting yet maybe disturbing display of human skulls and bones sealed into the walls of the chapel.

 

 

The Properties

We currently have 3 properties in the Alcantarilha area.  To the south east of Alcantarilha town on the edge of Pera heading towards Armação de Péra is Casinha Cullenagh, a charming and very popular Cottage.  Casinha Cullenagh is in our Near Beach section, as it is with 5 minutes drive of Gále Praia Grande and Armação de Péra and Senhora de Rocha beach
