Dried fruit („frutos secos“), especially almonds, dried figs and the pods of the carob tree (“alfarrobeira”), are important ingredients for the traditional cuisine of the Algarve - primarily for the preparation of delicious sweets and cakes. The little museum, situated between the church of St. Francis („Igreja de São Francisco“) and the castle in the historical old town of Loulé, giving insight information about the production and processing of these regional produce, is really worth a visit. It is part of the municipal Museum ("Museu Municipal") of Loulé.
