In the small village of Cacela Velha, occupied over the centuries by different peoples, can be found a historical centre which includes a church of medieval origins, which was restored in the 16th and 18th centuries, and a 16th century fortress, rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake.
The Renaissance doorway on the church façade deserves special mention, as does a neoclassical altarpiece on the inside.
From the historical centre of Cacela Velha, you can enjoy a wonderful view over the Ria Formosa and discover this village with its typical houses.
