The Algarve which is the most south province of Portugal has almost 200 kilometres of coastline, between cliffs and long-stretching sands, three thousand hours of sun per year and pleasant temperatures influenced by the Mediterranean climate. The coast from the Sagres headland until Lagos, is dominated by cliffs and beaches enclosed by protective high cliffs.
Al-Gharb, which means ‘the west’, was the name chosen by the Arabs for a beautiful piece of land that had long been coveted by many. The Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans all left their mark on the language, customs and lifestyle of the Algarve people. The castles, fortresses, narrow streets, roof terraces and lacework-patterned chimneys are just some of the valuable legacies from these times. It was from Lagos and Sagres that the caravels set sail under the command of prince Henry the Navigator to discover the New World. The headland known as Ponta de Sagres still reminds us of the Portuguese Discoveries and the great courage of many navigators from the Algarve, such as Gil Eanes.
On their return from this great adventure, they brought with them rare commodities and the inspiration that was to further enrich the customs and traditions of the Algarve. The articles made of linen and jute, pottery, basket-weaving and the Cataplanas are just some of the treasures that are still produced today by local craftsmen. Blessed with fabulous weather, an amazing coastline, and a rich and varied landscape, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Monchique Mountains, the region is the perfect place to turn any stay into an unforgettable one.
