The Xorino Cave gets its name from a curious story that states that when it rains, it appears as though the cave is crying. This is also the cave where the Moors took refuge in the 13th century following the Christian re-conquest of the town of Albufeira.

Today, the cave is a beautiful place to visit in the summers when the tide is low enough for boats to sail through, and if you’re lucky you’ll catch a glimpse of various nesting birds. The various rock formations and the voyage through the caves give it a sense of childish adventure and this is a great tour to embark upon with a seasoned guide who can shed some light onto the finer details of the history of the surroundings.
