Celebrating the Algarve's Landscape, Culture, and Traditions
At Figs on the Funcho, we take immense pride in intertwining our activities and experiences with the Algarve's abundant landscape, vibrant culture, and cherished traditions. A recent exploration focused on the historic Almancil Igreja de São Lourenço, a testament to the region's architectural legacy, beautifully captured by our artists through the expressive mediums of ink and mixed media.

Our commitment to preserving and celebrating the local environment shines through as we seamlessly integrate noteworthy structures, along with bird and animal subjects, into our art sessions.
