Alvor Alvor

Alvor is a small fishing village about 5 km to the west of Portimão/Praia da Rocha. During the Moorish occupation it even had a castle which unfortunately, like almost the rest of the village, was destroyed bij the 1755 earthquake.
The village is located facing a natural lagoon onto the ocean.
The narrow streets in the center offer a surplus of nice shops, restaurants and cosy bars.
Within walking distance (about 500 mtrs.) you find one of the nicest sandy beaches of the Algarve.
