Historical Algarve

Silves was the first capital of the Algarve until the mid-16th century, when it was transferred to Faro. Largely because of the siltation of the Arade River. The Museum of Portimão is housed in the former Feu canning factory and tells the story of the city.

Lagos and Sagres are inseparable from Prince Henrique and his role in the Discoveries. Ponta da Bandeira Fort was one of the last defensive points built in Lagos. Cape St Vincent is the extreme southwest of Portugal.

Faro is the capital of the Algarve. It has been the seat of a bishopric since the 3rd century and incorporated into the Muslim empire from 713. Conquered by King Afonso III in 1249, it was integrated into Portuguese territory. It became a prosperous city in the following centuries, and it is now possible to visit the testimonies of those times.
