The Arade River connects Silves with the seaport of Portimão. It used to be an important trade route before the lower course of the river silted up. Nowadays the old bridge (“Ponte Velha”) is only used by pedestrians.

The old bridge over the Arade river is also called a “Roman Bridge”, although it is most likely not of Roman origin, but was built during medieval times.

The Catedral Sé de Silves was erected in the 13th century after Silves had been reconquered from the Moors, most likely in the place of a former mosque. It is different from most other historic buildings in the Algarve as it partially survived the earth quake of 1755.
