The town of Alte, the seat of the parish, is located in the geographical center of the Algarve, exactly on the border between Barrocal and Serra. Away from the tourist coastline, it is considered one of the most typical and preserved villages in the Algarve (and even Portugal), with its houses painted in the current colors of the region (ocher, almagre, azulão, antracite, standing out from a background White), the roofs, the traditional chimneys and the alleys paved in Portuguese sidewalk.
