Favorite thing: This is the beach at Praia Da Oura,, the closest beach to our apartment at Santa Eulalia, and about 10 minutes' walk. For more info on Praia Da Oura see my separate page.
Favorite thing: another view of Sant'Ana church, this time the front entrance, rather obscured by modern developments.
Favorite thing: A photo of the restored Gothic doorway of the Misericordia Chapel. The Chapel contains the tomb of Rui Dias, who was assumed to have been the Governor of the Castle.
Cosmopolitan resort wide clean beach bounded by cliffs.
Albufeira is bigger then Armaco de Pera, much more shops and restaurants, but I like the beach much better in Armacao the Pera.
Favorite thing: However the beach of Armacao de Pera is just beautiful with it's beautiful rocks, where you can lie in the shadow during the hot summer months.
Is a beautiful small town with one of the biggest nature bay from the world.
Many discovery journeys started at the harbor of Lagos.
Favorite thing: On my way to Albufeira. There was going to take place in Faro the anual moto gathering. 20 thousand motos europe wide got together.
Favorite thing: A final view of this attractive garden area. It was never so crowded as to make you feel oppressed.
Favorite thing: Albufeira being a small fishing village in the past, is the perfect location to go to the beach and get tanned. The sea is a bit cold, according to me, cause it's an open sea.
The busiest harbour of the Algarve.
It is fun to walk along the harbour, watching the fishing boats and the fishers repairing their nets and get the fish they catch on shore.
