ABOUT THE AREA
Albufeira is a coastal city in the southern Algarve region of Portugal. It’s a former fishing village that has become a major holiday destination, with sandy beaches and a busy nightlife strip. Local fishermen now use the modern marina, also a base for diving, dolphin-watching and boat trips. It’s surrounded by candy-colored apartments, with a waterfront promenade.
Once a scenic fishing village, Albufeira gained popularity for its sharp, red-gold sand beaches. Today, it’s devoted to mass-market tourism, particularly cheap package deals, and has all but lost the vestiges of its past. Fishing boats are now moored at the ultramodern marina southwest of the centre, and the old town – with its pretty cobblestone streets and Moorish influences
Old Town: Albufeira has an interesting past. Once occupied by the Romans and the Arabs, some believe it has been inhabited since prehistoric times. If you want to experience the history of Albufeira, take a stroll through the cobbled streets of the Old Town. The 18th century-built Santa Ana Church in Largo Jacinto d’Ayete has become a local landmark and is worth a look. In Praça de Republica you’ll find Albufeira’s Archaeological Museum, which houses a small collection of artefacts dating from the Stone-Age to the 17th century.
The Strip: Modern and worlds apart from the Old Town, The Strip runs from the northern end of Albufeira down to the golden beach of Oura. In high season it buzzes with activity day and night. The Strip spills over into the side streets and is bursting with shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs – it never sleeps!
Paderne: This traditional village is 13km from the city and a great example of rural Algarve. There are a number of monuments worth seeing in the village centre: the old bridge and watermill, and a couple of churches – 16th century Nossa Senhora da Esperança and the 18th century Nossa Senhora do Pé da Cruz. You can also visit Moinho do Leitão a renovated windmill, just below the village centre in Cerca Velha – look out for the brown tourist information sign.
Long considered one of the most cosmopolitan places in Portugal, Albufeira welcomes a growing number of foreigners looking to enjoy the beauty of its coast, its economic dynamism, its excellent gastronomy, its intense nightlife, and its safety together with an exceptional quality of life.
Even if this isn’t your sort of place, Albufeira has good transport links to lovely beaches, such as Praia da Galé to the west. There are loads of activities and there’s a relaxed holiday atmosphere away from the British pubs. To explore the pretty inland villages and the area’s high-quality rural restaurants, you will need your own transport.
