The Caldas de Monchique are the thermal springs on the south side of Monchique, where the Monchique bottled water is sourced. There is an old village, the buildings of which are now bars and restaurants. There are a couple of newer hotels, which offer thermal pampering. The place is awash with water, it even flows underneath the buildings even (not good Feng Shui surely?). There is some interesting Moorish style architecture to be seen on some buildings, along with coloured glass panels.
While my exhibition was there, I made sketches which resulted in two paintings, one of which is shown above and the other here
This painting shows a view
looking east, including some of the Moorish style buildings.
