Travel Tips for Vila Real de Santo António

Grid system

by Willettsworld

You may notice that the streets are all perpendicular to each other in a grid system. Why? Well, the town was designed that way by the Marquês de Pombal who was keen to apply the latest concept of town planning after the sea had eroded all of the original settlements in the area at the beginning of the 17th century. The Royal charter founding the town, after the 1755 earthquake, was signed on December 30th 1773, while the marking out of the street plan was started on March 2nd 1774 and by August 6th, the Town Hall, Customs House and barracks had already been completed!

River Influence

In Portugal we use to say that "one image speaks more than 1000 words". Having that in mind, and more than 1000 pictures to post, I decided to change my behaviour, posting the pictures as soon as they are ready and adding the comments later.
Don't get mad on me - I'm glad to share my pictures with you, and the comments will be added soon.

Great beach

by Leipzig

Southwest of Vila Real de Santo Antonio is the resort of Monte Gordo. The town is located at the mouth of the Guadiana River, is the last in a long line of Algarvian resorts. Its beach is one of the finest on Portugal's southern coast. This beach has the highest average water temperature in Portugal.

Feira da Praia

by keeweechic

During the 2nd week of October there is a festival (Feira da Praia) and you will find all kinds of stalls lining the avenue selling anything from crafts to clothing. A popular event with both locals and the Spanish neighbours.
