Description

Take a journey around the city and enjoy 360 degree panoramic views from the top of an open top double-decker bus. Take a full tour round or hop off at conveniently located stops at your leisure with your 24 hour ticket. Visit Albufeira's picturesque Old Town which offers an abundance of authentic local shops and restaurants along endless cobblestone roads. The town square presents a backdrop of enchanting old churches and the square itself is filled with a choice of excellent bars, live music bars and cafes. Wander through the tunnel, past the bell tower and through the old castle to the fantastic Fishermans beach.

Many ancient churches in Albufeira were renovated after a devastating earthquake in the 18th century. Consequently a large proportion of local landmarks now display a fusion of architectural styles. There are also several centuries-old Moorish sights dotted around old-town Albufeira. Admire the unique architecture evident in the Manueline style S. Sebastio Church, the 18th century Sant'Ana Church and the restored gothic-styled Misericordia Chapel. The Bell Tower in the Parish Church is one of the town's landmarks. The tower is topped with an eight-bell carillon and the stairwell stands 28 metres high. Visit The Tower of Medronheira which was built in the 1500s and was used to watch the seaward horizon for pirates and invaders. Hop off and admire the impressive statue of St. Vincente which commemorates the famous missionary's eventual martyrdom in Japan.

If you are looking to go hiking, a trip to the Xorino Cave is a must. The cave was used to house Moorish fugitives during the Christian Reconquest of Albufeira. Arquivo Histórico e Biblioteca Municipal is a home for examples of manuscripts of the historical events of the region. Learn more of the city's rich history at the Municipal Archaeological Museum. Cool off from the Algarve sun in one of the local Water Parks or perhaps try your hand at surfing or sailing! Golf is a known attraction to the area, with three courses nearby popular with both tourists and locals. To the west of the town you will find the Marina. Here you can enjoy the tranquil atmosphere, watch the boats and relax in a terraced café. You can also take a boat trip or explore the caves in an inflatable boat. The town is home to many restaurants and bars, but much of the pulsating nightlife of Abufeira can be found on The Strip. The Strip has everything from smaller quiet pubs and Irish bars to sports bars and lively clubs.
