About São Bartolomeu de Messines is a village of Arab origin which already existed in 1189 when the crusaders and the troops of D.
Sancho I conquered Silves.
At that time, it was called Mussiene or Adh-Dhakira Assania, which proves that the settlement was well structured.
Unfortunately, we know nothing about the following centuries.
The medieval church which once existed here has not survived to the present day and even the locality seems to have lost importance, probably due to its inland and peripheral location in relation to the main power centres of the late-medieval Algarve.
So, to sum up São Bartolomeu de Messines is a small and charming village located northeast of Silves.
The village belonged to the Moors until it was conquered by the Portuguese in 1189, at the time called 'Mussiene'.
Today, about 8000 people live in São Bartolomeu de Messines, surrounded by a magnificent landscape that overlooks the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.
This ruin is a good deal, where you can find the ideal conditions to build your house and live in a pleasant and quiet place in communion with nature and where you can if you want to do agriculture and with space to have animals.
