Albufeira, Central Algarve

Albufeira today is synomonous with tourism and the hussle and bustle of thousands of holiday makers flooding through the old historic old town quarter, and the neon lights of the "strip". However it is also an area steeped in history dating back centuries to the Neolithis and Bronze ages. In fact many of the old worldy traits can be seen here today.

From Fishing Port to City
The origins of this great city are found back when the Moors gradually inhabited the Algarve, the name Albufeira comes from the Arab "Al-Buhera", which means "Castle of the Sea" which is perhaps derived from the large fortification built atop the lower part of the town.

Much of the inhabitants of Albufeira made their living from the fishing industry during the 19th century, this in fact was almost the sole means of income for the city at that time, and is still evident today, although not so prominent.

It was not until the 1960s that Albufeira become a holiday destination and tourism began to be seen as a potential income generator for the area. This tourism, grew and grew and in 1986 Albufeira, gained the title of city, and has been host to millions of people of the years, with no sign of any decline in its popularity, and it recognised as one of the most desired holiday destinations in Europe.
