ALGARVE

Situated on the extreme South of Portugal, this part of the territory was the last to be conquered from the Moors by the Portuguese king in 1292. Traces of the Moorish presence are still seen in its unique architecture - terraces, chimneys and whitewashed houses.
However, the distance that was difficult to cover back in the 13th century is no longer an obstacle thanks to the modern Lisbon-Albufeira-Castro Marim road (IP1) or Faro international airport. So why not visit this charming region, with its idyllic.
Temperatures which are ideal for playing golf and other sports. This brightly coloured region, with its fig trees, orange groves and almond trees in blossom, is also the most verdant and fertile. The southern coastline consists of a long stretch of fabulous sandy beaches, broken up by extraordinary rugged cliffs and fantastic grottoes.
Apart from the wealth of available water sports facilities (the marina of Vilamoura deserves special mention, amongst the various ports and harbours), there are other alternatives, such as tennis courts, famous golf`courses, luxury hotels or quaint holiday resorts and an exciting nightlife.

Vilamoura

VILAMOURA

Many of the Algarve's resorts have grown in a rather chaotic fashion around a pre-existing town or village.

Not so in Vilamoura. This is a modern, purpose-built resort where everything has been planned and designed with your pleasure in mind. The huge range of facilities available makes it a very popular destination for families seeking stress-free fun.

Portimão

PORTIMÃO

First the blue sea and its gently lapping waves. Then fine, golden sands framed by cliffs and rocks.
This is the Algarve of beach holidays in the sun. Portimão and its municipality have more to offer though.
A rich heritage of historical monuments. The eternal natural beauty of Ria de Alvor. The charm of cultivated fields, of slopes covered with pine trees and wild flowers. The allure of walking up into the hills and looking down on the Algarve from a new perspective.
In this fishermen's town, visit the mother-church (14th century, rebuilt in the 18th century), the Colégio Church (17th century), and the Town Hall. In the suburbs, the renowned Praia da Rocha (with its Santa Catarina de Ribamar Fortress), and the Roman ruins of Abicada.
Popular crafts - Wicker and cane baskets, hats, mats and baskets made of palm leaves and twisted "esparto" grasses, lace and embroidery, copper utensils, domestic and decorative earthenware : these are among the unassuming treasures that the craftsmen and women of Portimão continue to make using traditional materials, motifs and techniques.
