and well-kept secrets are well worth investigating.
The Algarve is the southernmost region of Portugal. The name comes from the Arabic word al gharb and means “the west”. The presence of the Arabs in this region left such a deep mark that their influence can still be found today in the architecture, culture and gastronomy.
Thanks to the mild climate, the Algarve receives visitors all year round who come to benefit from all the best that the region has to offer. A large number of beaches where you can practise a variety of nautical sports, areas of rare natural beauty and a vibrant nightlife make this one of the most popular regions among Portuguese and foreign tourists.
