Bus Station Location in Silves?

by fideauxdon

I'm looking for a street address for the Silves bus station. I've read that it's in the Old Town, but I don't know where the Old Town is.

Re: Bus Station Location in Silves?

This is the address:

Bus station (Terminal Rodoviario de Silves)
Loja Mercado Municipal
Tel:282442338

You can also see it on a map:

Hope it helps!

It is not a bus terminal, just bus stops by the side of the road. The bus company ticket and enquiry office is at the municipal market building, about 100 metres away from where the buses stop. All the buses going out of town (eg to Albufeira, Portimao) stop on the side of the road marked EN 124, nearest the river, where there is a little shelter and some seats. It's just to the left of the left of the 'Ponte Romana' as you look at the map.

It's by the rather nice riverside area, about two minutes walk into the town centre. the castle and church are on top of a steep hill, which towers above the town.

Sorry I have just looked at that link above properly. The road I referred to asthe EN124 is the wide road running diagonally across, partly alongside the river. The actual bus stops are right where the road and river diverge. It's an old picture and where you can see cars parked is now a landscaped area for pedestrians.

By the way it isn't a Roman Bridge you can see, merely 8th or 9th Century people think!

Travel Tips for Silves

Cigueñas / Storks

by elpariente

Es normal ver en las torres y campanarios los nidos de las cigüeñas y oir el ruido tan típico que hacen ( Lo llaman en español gazpachear )

It is normal to see in the towers and bell towers the nests of storks and to hear the noise so typical that they do (They call in Spanish gazpachear )

Storks Nest

by Willettsworld

After visiting the Archaeological Museum and admiring the Advanced Tower (part of the old town battlements in front of the museum), I spotted this stork on its nest at the top of a tall chimney on a small building just down the road.

A great place for the washing!

by scottishvisitor

Many houses in the village have flat roofs where you can gain access via a stairway usually from the rear of the property. The roof is often used as an extra room for evening dining as it is much cooler than being inside. The roof is also commonly used as a garden area with colourful pot plants and a place to hang and dry washing on a sunny day - or just a place to sit and watch the world go by. Many property owners extend there houses by building a proper room up here with walls and a roof.

Water from the Well

by scottishvisitor

While walking in the village just past the little streets and near a pleasant little stream - we came across this very decorative well. The picture shows a Monk with a water jug and the beautiful floral pots which adorn the well. Lots of people would stop by - usually by car and fill up various sized water containers. We asked some locals what was so special about the water and were told - it was the freshest & coolest water around & came from an underground mountain stream. The taste test = oh yes this was the finest drink of water we had ever had and best of all it is free!

The Cockeral who told the truth

by scottishvisitor

Or did he? Where ever you go in Portugal you will encounter this Cockeral - he will show up in beer mats - tea towels - wine stoppers - t shirts but he will show up. The story goes a wealthy man held a banquet & the silver ware was stolen. One guest was accusted & found guilty. He then spotted a cockeral sleeping in a basket & said "If the cock crows I am innocent" the bird complide & he was set free!!
