Across the region there are an enormous number of events held each week, throughout the entire year. With 16 municipalities in The Algarve each publishes its list of events. We bring them all together in one place for you to check regularly and plan your visit.
From Aljezur and Sagres in the west across to Vila Real de Santo Antonio and Alcoutim in the east close to the Spanish Border, the Algarve is full of fascinating towns to visit, rich in history, culture and architecture. We explore each town and what is nearby.
The Algarve is simply full of beaches. With more than 150 individually named beaches, there are simply too many to name. Many where the sand just goes on and on for many kilometres, some with fantastic cliffs as a backdrop, and some intimate small coves. We show you our favourites.
Art Galleries are not straightforward to find but they exist. The Algarve also has some very good artists, some with studios that you can visit. There are galleries in or close to most major towns, click through to see where they are. More information...
