    The space is very well arranged and the main monument, through your restoration, allows you to understand exactly how the location was at the time in which it was built. It was a shame not to have had the opportunity to visit also the Museum of Portimão, where you can see some artifacts collected in the area. Recommend to anyone with a little time

  • A nice place. Not overly large but the ruins are good to see. The views are spectacular. The visitor centre is adequate and does have toilets.
  • I went to see a performance by the choir Adage and the contemporary dance group of CMP Portimão. And just amazing.

  • Sorry not to be more monuments discovered to the public. But it's worth the journey.

  • The two monuments are fine, but the environment gives feeling of abandonment.

Where to stay in Alvor

Packed with bars and restaurants serving traditional Portuguese food, Alvor's town center is also home to its prime accommodations. While not necessarily replete with options, the historical center has a number of private villas and mid-range hotels that offer affordable prices while placing the city's cobbled streets and winding alleys right at your doorstep. Or, head outside Alvor to one of the nearby residential agglomerations along the sea, where you'll find more resort-style, upscale hotels with higher price points that get you even closer to the area's pristine beaches.
