Have a nice weekend

Portimão has a rich history, based mainly to and in the ocean, land of fish and fishermen, with several occupancies since pre-historical times.
This region has a cosmopolitan atmosphere of an international tourism destination: this is the Algarve of beach holidays in the sun. However, Portimão and its municipality have much more to offer: a rich heritage of historical monuments; the eternal natural beauty of the Ria de Alvor; the charm of cultivated fields, of slopes covered with pine trees and wild flowers; the allure of walking up into the hills and looking down on the Algarve from a new perspective.

In the last three decades tourism has been the motor driving Portimão's economy and the city can now claim to be the second most populous in the Algarve.
A town with excellent offering of accommodation, restaurants, leisure and animation, with famous beaches.

Portimão is also one of the places of election when it comes to gastronomy in the Algarve. Land of fishermen, with many influences (national and international), and with top quality fish and shellfish.
