THE PERFECT PLACE TO VISIT

ALJEZUR, PORTUGAL

Aljezur is a land that has distant origins, and is marked by various archeological remnants. Its territory has been inhabited since prehistory. The period of Muslim occupation (during the 10th-11th century) resulted in the largest expansion of architectonic construction, as evidence by archaeological excavations in the Castle of Aljezur, Ponta da Atalaia (Ribat of Arrifana), and Ponta do Castelo (Carrapateira). Aljezur was founded in the 10th century by Berbers who remained in the region for the following five centuries, until the Christian conquest.

WEST ALGARVE

The South Western Algarve is something different than the Southern Algarve where people play golf, dine from photograph menu’s, live in high rise hotels and lie towel to towel on packed beaches. Here in South Western corner you find the protected nature reserve (PNSACV) with its rugged coastlines, quiet beaches and endless forest and cliff top walks. The small towns of Aljezur, Lagos, Sagres and Carrapateira have lovely picturesque restaurants and offer friendly accommodation for all walks of life.
