Aljezur Aljezur

Nice hillside town on the Algarve's unspoilt by mass tourisms' west coast.
For hundreds of years agriculture was, and is, Aljezur's main economic activity but its sharing more and more in the social and economic renewal of the Algarve.
The damage caused by the 1755 earthquake led to the construction of a new settlement across from Aljezur, called Igreja Nova.
Nearby beaches (Arrifana, Monte Clérigo and Vale de Figueiras) are ideal for windsurfing and surfing.
