Boasting a privileged and unique location, on the far south-westerly tip of Europe and creating a bridge between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean, Portimão is a place which has a fantastic climate and a very rich natural beauty. It is a land which holds its rural and maritime roots in high esteem.
