The picturesque town of Alvor, near Portimão, represents a connection between history, heritage and natural beauty.
Taking a walk through the streets of Alvor is a true workout for your senses. Here, the Arab presence can be seen in many of the buildings or in the marabouts, as well as in the name itself: Alvor or Al-Bûr (as it was known).
We invite you to walk up and down the streets in search of the best view over the houses and to one of the most impressive landscapes of the Algarve: the Ria de Alvor (Alvor Estuary).
In Alvor, the fishing boats contrast with the calmness of the salty air and the various shades of red in the sky at sunset.
