The parish of Boliqueime in the municipality of Loulé is situated between the A22 motorway and the EN125. Boliqueime is the seat of a parish, with 42 square kilometres of extension, and more than 6.000 inhabitants. The toponym “Boliqueime” derives from the Italian “bulicame” which means “thermal spring”, the creation of this village being linked to the Genovese, Venetians and Sicilians who, in the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, commanded the Algarve coast for tuna and whale fishing and went to Boliqueime to carry the indispensable drinking water, Fonte de Boliqueime. Today the commercial part of the village lies directly at the EN125 and is known as Fonte de Boliqueime.
The nucleus of the village is an elevated site with houses grouped around the church. Boliqueime offers good infrastructure and convenient location with easy and quick access to Albufeira and Vilamoura. During the last years, more and more foreigners chose the area of Boliqueime as their residence.
