  • Great historical place, taking you back to sardines industrial times, when 23 factories at Portimão used to be prosperous. French spoken. Paid 4.5€ for 2 adults and 4 kids.
  • Wow!!! What a great museum. Visited on a rainy afternoon and were blown away. A real highlight not only for rainy days. Shows the history of the region as well as an insight in the fish can manufacturing (way more interesting than it sounds ;). Entry is only €3!
  • The history of local people and their town. Well done Portimão 👍😎
  • If you enjoy museums you mustn't miss this. It focuses on the fishing industry and it past in Portimao. Enjoyed it!
  • Great to hear and see on film the history of the sardine industry. Archive films are terrific . You get a real feel of how it must have been. Free entry on Saturdays !!!!

Where to stay in Praia da Rocha

Make the most of Praia da Rocha's array of outdoor activities by staying at a luxury hotel right along the shore. Though on the pricier side, these upscale hotels and chains provide a wealth of amenities, from restaurants and bars to private spas and outdoor pools, all within easy walking distance of the sand and surf. You can stay on a budget by considering a guesthouse or mid-range hotel in the nearby town of Portimao. Alternatively, rent out a private villa or apartment, often offered by locals, to get a beachfront setting outside the hustle and bustle of a large hotel.
