  • As much as the part of the Algarve west of the capital is noisy with tourists, the lovely little fishing town of Olhão to the east, for example, is so calm. The red brick market square, which is one of the city’s most characteristic buildings, stands out from the white-walled houses in sharp contrast, in front of which, in the square opening towards the ocean and the labyrinth of lagoons, it is pleasant to sit. Small bars and family restaurants can be found in the narrow, intertwining streets of the town.

  • We can also benefit from this famous Portuguese tranquility on this sightseeing walking tour. We will walk along the path of legends, admire the most beautiful church in the city, see where the wives of local fishermen go to pray, venture into the tiny streets full of cozy shops, restaurants and cafes, and of course discover the Algarve’s largest market!
