The Arabs dominated this rich land for over five decades until it was conquered by the Christians. Due to an earthquake and consequently flooding in 1504, the town of Albufeira was devastated. The town Albufeira was then reborn, rich in commercialization of seafood and dried fruit, reintegrated Albufeira as of one of the most sort after destinations.Renowned for their diversity, beauty and quality, Albufeira’s beaches are among the best in Europe, currently in 14th position in the Top 25 of the “Travellers Choice Awards 2102”.
