Portimão (Algarve), Portugal

Portimão (Algarve), Portugal

There are a lot of places to see in the world, but they don’t all have names this fun to say: Portimão! (Rhymes with "wow!") But here on Portugal’s southern coast, the beauty isn’t only name-deep — cruise practically into relaxing postcard scenery that’s every bit as laid back as it looks. But if you’re up for sightseeing, there’s so much to see elsewhere in Portimão’s home region of Algarve, like the exclusive resort Carvoeiro, scenic fishing village Alvor… plus Ponta da Piedade, where the land meets the Atlantic most dramatically and photogenically.

  • See the façade of azulejos, typical decorative blue tiles, at Parish Church of Monchique.
  • Learn the story of Prince Henry The Navigator at his memorial in Lagos.
  • Explore the beautiful coastal town of Sagres, which dates back to Roman times.
