Restaurants in Monchique

We gave the task to Cola and Veronika today to create content for our map of Monchique.

They researched the local restaurants of Monchique. They asked the owners about their favourite places in Monchique. They came out as:

Top 5 attractions in Monchique

  • Waterfalls
  • Watermill and picnic spot
