Located seaside in the centre of the Algarve is the town of Albufeira. Since ancient times, Albufeira has been one of the most renowned fishing and maritime ports in Portugal. After the passing of the Romans, the Arabs left their footprint on this important village, originally naming the area "Al-Behera," which resembled "The sea castle."
The Arabs dominated this rich land for over five decades until it was conquered by the Christians. Due to an earthquake and subsequent flooding in 1504, the town of Albufeira was devastated. However, the town was reborn and became one of the most sought-after destinations, with a focus on the commercialization of seafood and dried fruit. Renowned for their diversity, beauty, and quality, Albufeira's beaches are among the best in Europe, currently ranking 14th in the Top 25 of the "Travelers' Choice Awards 2012." The diversity of beaches in the area of Albufeira is extraordinary, ranging from pine tree settings and unique cliff faces to breathtaking rock formations and never-ending sand banks along the Algarvian coastline.
