Etnogarbe – Turismo e Animação Cultural
We are a tourism and cultural entertainment company operating in the western Algarve. Our activities are intended to help visitors discover the local history and identity. Since the natural and environmental surroundings influence the way local populations live (and lived), what we are suggesting is the interpretation of the material and immaterial vestiges of this relationship.
We offer three types of activities:
- Walks through the natural landscape. Not only do we identify the flora, fauna and geology of the places we visit, but we also explain the relationship between the natural resources and the lifestyles of the local populations. Our chosen areas are the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Nature Park (Sagres and Aljezur), and the Monchique Mountains;
- Cultural tours in the cities of Lagos, Silves and Portimão;
- Cultural experiences, such as the cataplana experience and the traditional sweet-making workshop.
