A highlight of the summer months in Loulé is Noite Branca, the Festival of White Night held to celebrate the end of summer. Locals and tourists, all wearing white, converge on the town, where a dazzling display of music, dance and pageantry awaits. Young people wander the streets, dressed in white as princes and princesses, demons and winged fantasy figures, while live bands play in the background. Loulé is also the largest municipality in the Algarve and includes well-known towns near the sea but also the hidden villages in the Algarve mountains where there are unmistakable landscapes.
