The Algarve s romantic Senhora da Rocha
Jun 04, 2015
If you are looking for a romantic break in the Algarve, you can't go wrong with hiring a cabriolet at Faro Airport and driving along the coast to Porches, where the lovely Senhora da Rocha chapel forms the background to many a proposal. It is a favourite spot for star-crossed lovers, no matter if you want to "pop the question", simply confess your love for the first time or re-affirm your wedding vows.

Aim to be there at dusk, when the fading blue of sky and sea melt to create a poetic backdrop to the little white-washed chapel. Listen to the surf of the waves wash over the pebbles, the screeching seagulls and distant noise coming from the little fishing boats that bob in the sea. The chapel occupies a cliff-top spot above a lovely cove and beach. This is a favourite location for lovers, who can often be seen strolling away from the church towards the picturesque Ristorante Belmondo for a candlelit dinner, after exchanging rings.

Sip a glass of wine, see the chapel's silhouette gradually vanish in the lilac, blue and red evening skies and breathe in the fresh sea air, fragrant with wild herbs, salt and the promise of more romance. Porches offers a good selection of holiday accommodation, if you don't fancy returning your chic red cabriolet to the car rental service team at Faro Airport that same day.
