Algarve: Europe’s most famous secret

This is the English version of my blog GDAMAS (Portuguese language, online since 2010). I'm still working on it. English is not my native language.


Portugal world widely promotes the Algarve (south of the country) as “Europe’s most famous secret.”

It’s easy to understand why this secret is a favorite destination for European tourists — especially British, German, Dutch, French, and Spanish. Many of them refer to the Algarve as “The Paradise.”

Breathtaking landscapes, amazing gastronomy for seafood lovers, kind people, gorgeous beaches, spectacular golf fields, bird watching, a History full of castles and fortresses. The Algarve is all of this and much more. I know what I’m talking about, because I live here and learn secrets. 😉

The  Portuguese Tourist Authority has made a WONDERFUL video about the region. With a heart-touching soundtrack, they focus on beaches, golf fields, landscaping. We don’t see the modern atmosphere of the Algarve, and I also miss the very rich History that appears in castles, forts, and other things. But I am sure that you’ll LOVE the video just like I do.

Watch it now:

I live in the Algarve (South of Portugal). My first fiction book, for young adults, was published in 2001 in Portuguese language — a time travel adventure that won thousands of readers. I also wrote some travel and tech books and manuals.
