Almost one thousand years ago, when the algarve was still occupied by the Moors, a King called Almundin, that had a palace near the Vila Monte Resort, fell in love with a princess called Gilda, who came from the north. She was a fair young lady, with blue eyes and long blond hair. They got married and the whole region celebrated the event. With time, Guilda became sad and her husband didn't know how to cheer her up. One day she said the reason for her sadness was that she missed the snowcovered fields of her home land.The king then decided to plant thousands of almond trees all over the algarve, so that when they bloomed in spring, the white flowers would give the impression of snow. Still today, in springtime the algarve is covered with little white flowers, forever paying a tribute to the act of loveof a Moorish King.
