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.

  • Made with a bus tour and so there ended up! Is there a lot of effort, but really it doesn't work!

  • Stopped in old town for first time last week. Found the area to be clean and the locals friendly. Lots of nice places to eat and drink, especially if you come away from the main square you get better ...  more »
  • It is an old but very cosy village with narrow streets where can hardly pass cars, cobbled tracks, Coast village architecture. In the centre there is much Commerce, many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Weekend gets very lively, more people walking the streets. On Saturday evening there are festivals, shows and entertainment, many people drinking. If yours is not that kind of distraction, better avoid going that day by the center of Albufeira.
