EXPLORE ALBUFEIRA

Albufeira is famous for its cost line and beaches with countless shades and tones of its rocks and cliffs. Restaurants, bars and discotheques that enliven the night time hours.
Rich cultural heritage where the Main Church and the Paderne Castle stands out.
Local craftsmen and women continue to make items from palm leaves and esparto grass, objects in copper and tin, baskets, lace and typical footwear, as they have done for centuries. More recent in origin, but equally creative, are the painted textiles and tapestries they produce, which are often decorated with regional motifs.
In Albufeira inland, the green of the countryside is dotted with almond, fig, orange and pine trees and decorated chimneys stand out against the ochre of tiled roofs. Bucolic villages invite you to experience a way of life rooted in the tranquillity of nature.
