The Algarve

Europe's most famous secret

The Algarve is located in the western end of Europe, in the south of Portugal, with an area of 4,996.8 km2 and a resident population of about 444,390 inhabitants, distributed across 16 municipalities.
It has an average population density of around 90.3 inhabitants/Km2, stretching along a coastline of 150 Km and is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean.
The geographical position of the Algarve gives it special bioclimatic characteristics. Although situated on the Atlantic Ocean, it has a temperate climate with Mediterranean characteristics, with more than 3,000 hours of sunshine a year and a low annual average of rainfall.
The most important sector of activity is the tertiary sector (trade and services), and the result of the main economic activity in the region - tourism. This economic subsector assumes such importance in the Algarve that it represents, directly and indirectly, about 60% of total employment and 66% of regional GDP.
It should be noted that the Algarve annually receives about 5 million tourists.

A few words of history

Throughout the region it is still possible to unveil the charms and secrets of Portuguese history that time does not extinguish. From the Roman presence to the long Muslim heritage, from the Christian reconquista to the epic of the Portuguese Discoveries, there is no shortage of reasons to rediscover signs of a remarkable historical past.
Heir to ancient civilizations, the Algarve region was also the point of passage for other peoples, in a connection almost always facilitated by the immense sea that bathes its coasts.
More than five centuries of Arab influence have forever marked the region's destiny, starting with its own name: Al-Gharb, The West. This presence, which lasted from the 8th to the 13th centuries, still stands out in the names of the towns, in the agriculture, in the architecture of the monuments, in the lacework patterns of the terraces and chimneys, or in the white of the lime covering the houses of many villages in the Algarve.
