Many tourists would not find a reason to visit the village apart from visiting the two newly built Aldi’s and Lidl located just off the new double roundabouts, but Boliqueime has two smaller parishes. Fonte de Boliqueime, with the EN: 125 road running through the middle of it. You will not actually find Fonte de Boliqueime. The place name refers to hot and cold springs that were present in the 13th to 15th century and appear to have reference to Italy with the name ”bulicame” meaning Thermal springs . Nowadays the only remaining evidence of a Fonte is one that sits inside a restaurant.
Poco de Boliqueime just further up. This is where most tourists think they have visited Boliqueime and having nothing to offer. But you would be wrong as to drive that little further until you reach Boliqueime itself, the village has the charm of other villages in the Algarve. Boliqueime has a monthly market on the last Thursday of the month (see Markets). Many good restaurants offering fantastic sunset views. The village is well worth the inland visit for those staying closer to the coast.
