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 — mainly British, German, Dutch, French, and Spanish. Many of them refer to the Algarve as “The Paradise.”
Breathtaking landscapes, fantastic 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. They focus on beaches, golf fields, and landscaping with a heart-touching soundtrack. We don’t see the modern atmosphere of the Algarve, and I also miss the vibrant History that appears in castles, forts, and other things. But I am sure that you’ll LOVE the video just like I do.
