Portimão is a thriving cosmopolitan city that has become one of the main tourist destinations in the Algarve. In addition to the excellent beaches, easy access to golf courses and a wide range of services and entertainment activities, Portimão offers the beauty of the Ria de Alvor. It is a place where tourists who enjoy fun, eager to discover the nightlife and leisure activities of the city, will be as satisfied as nature lovers who want to spend their days contemplating migratory birds in the serene landscape of the protected Ria de Alvor.
Spectacular beaches have transformed Portimão into the welcoming and dynamic city it is today. Beaches of fine, golden area, framed by sculpted cliffs, form the natural landscape of this coast, providing endless sunny days and the practice of a large number of water sports. Sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, diving and deep sea fishing complement the boat trips that explore the caves and natural tunnels or that sail from the river Arade to the city of Silves.
East of Portimão are calm waters, swampy terrains and sand dunes belonging to the protected area of the Alvor estuary, a natural reserve for dozens of species of migratory birds and an atmosphere of natural beauty that can be better admired by boat. In addition to the wildlife, the Ria also provides an admirable opportunity to observe the techniques of local workers who calmly carry out the tasks that guarantee their livelihood: collecting salt and raising seafood and fish in the estuary waters.
After a sunny day, the city of Portimão offers a lot of fun and occupations. The pier restaurants are perfect for sampling a local snack, sardines served on homemade bread or a full meal consisting of local soups, followed by a shellfish feijoada, seafood rice or fried cuttlefish. Traditional sweets and desserts - “morgados”, “egg balls” and “full figs” - are based on local products from the region, such as figs and almonds. The coastal area is ideal for leisure trips, and the exclusive Clube Naval offers fabulous restaurants overlooking the port.
There are many opportunities for shopping in Portimão, either in the narrow streets of the historic center, full of local handicrafts or in the modern shopping center. A glance at the shops in the historic center is more picturesque and ideal for purchasing local wickerwork, lace and embroidery, ceramics and copper utensils. The modern boutiques in Praia da Rocha are also very popular for “indispensable” holiday items.
As with most cities and towns along the Algarve coast, the destructive effects of the 1755 earthquake left little sign of Portimão's past splendor. All that remains of the original church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, from the 15th century, is the portal, a gothic gargoyle and a buttress, the rest will have been rebuilt in the 18th and 19th centuries. The mixture of architectural styles of the austere Colégio dos Jesuitas is also due to the successive reconstruction works over the centuries, but this houses the largest church in the Algarve and is also worth a visit. Many places of historical interest that testify to the presence of the ancient populations of the Algarve can be found a little further away. The archaeological site of Abicada contains traces of Roman villages from the 1st and 4th centuries, there is an important Neolithic / Chalcolithic cemetery in Alcalar and the Moorish architecture of the chapels of São João and São Pedro evokes the sacred places where Muslims buried their religious ascetics - marabouts.
Golf lovers have several courses available, including Alto Golf
