Visit Portugal

Inspired by


Well-known as a popular holiday destination in Portugal, the Algarve generously reveals itself to those who explore with a curious gaze.

The sea, the unique landscape, nature in its purest state, culture and tradition, the welcoming spirit of the locals all come together to provide a diversity of unique experiences.

The fourth Sketch Tour Reload Portugal tour took place in the Algarve during the month of June. The creative team passed through places such as:

  • Carvoeiro
  • Lagos
  • Silves old quarter and castle
  • Nossa Senhora da Rocha chapel
  • Albufeira old quarter
  • Olhão village and marketplace, and others.

The idea behind each journey made as part of the Sketch Tour Reload is the same: to bring together the experiences and different perspectives of a foreign sketcher and a Portuguese sketcher, and the literary talent of a Portuguese writer. Our creative team on this journey to the Algarve comprised three artists:

  • Italian sketcher Simonetta Capecchi;
  • Portuguese sketcher Pedro Loureiro;
  • Portuguese writer Matilde Campilho.
"It's a cape. At the top, there is a white building that provokes discussion as to its use to this day: castle, fortress, church, everything."
