Neighborhood
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.

  • Tank of English and Irish tourist who do that picolés all day. We asked that even if the Portugal because there are pubs at all key. In short nothing to do.

  • Albufeira became a space completely industrialized and banal. For those who are young and looking for the night is the ideal place. You're on the street and all touch you and address to buy something or enter. You can't stroll quiet! See if a lot of garbage on the floor due to the night moved among others. I can't find the history in that area, just shops. The hotels or stays it should be stay away do you sleep at night.
