Centro Historico de Albufeira, Albufeira
(3.6/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
The heart of a picturesque fishing village, Centro Historico de Albufeira basks in a traditional atmosphere accentuated with whitewashed walls and cobbled streets. Wander through narrow alleys lined with craft shops and street vendors selling souvenirs, then take a seat and people-watch at one of the bars or restaurants surrounding the quaint central square. Taste some of the local cuisine or sip a drink while cheering on the local soccer team. In the evening, live music fills the streets, and many clubs open stands with male and female dancers in the doorways.

  • In this region focus on many of the main attractions of the beautiful Albufeira, such as numerous restaurants and bars, all styles, hotels and hostels, many regional and gifts shops, beaches as fishermen and Inatel. Place to spend many hours during the day and night is the most frequented by tourists, from all over the world who revel in the beauty and tranquility of that beautiful city. I highly recommend.
