Get a captivating insight into the age-old techniques of dried fruit and sweets production at a museum in Loulé. In a workshop designed to give you a complete overview, observe traditional methods of production before trying your hand at making sweets from figs, almonds, and carob beans.

In the region surrounding Loulé, agriculture has been an essential part of the local economy for decades. At the Museum of Dried Fruits, the aim is to show you how cultivated seeds, fruits, and nuts can be worked into produce ready for consumption and sale. See how traditional techniques from the region's golden age of agriculture can still be used to create great tasting goods.

During a hands-on workshop you have the chance to put what you've seen to the test. Using harvested crops such as figs and almonds, learn how to make sweets from recipes passed down through the generations. The carob bean also features here, since its edible pods can be compared with cocoa flavors and have been a popular ingredient in the area throughout its history.
