Albufeira contains both the qualities of a typical Portuguese town with a pretty ‘old town’ area containing various impressive historical buildings and landmarks. There’s also a ‘strip’ area where you can find all the usual tourist amenities including restaurants, bars and clubs. The cobbled streets are lined with quaint shops and cafes.
Albufeira is a tourist city with a typical Portuguese feel.
