Alvor’s history dates back to the 4th century BC. The port was very prosperous during Roman occupation and the became Al-bur. The earthquake in 1755 obliterated the place and did the greatest damage to the village and its castle, which is now a children’s play park. But you still can visit the 16th century parish church, Igreja do Divino Salvador. Need a bit of action? Practice some watersports, horse riding in Mexilhoeira Grande or canoeing on Ria Alvor. But if you are looking for relax and sun, take a short pleasant walk to Alvor beach, a vast expanse of golden sand with pristine appearance as there is a very little tourist development on the beachfront.

Want to see a submarine shaped rock? You can swim out around the corner of it and you’ll discover another inviting cave perfect to explore the secrets held within.
