Centro Historico de Albufeira, Albufeira

(3.6/5 based on 2,400+ 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.
