Vila Real de Santo António City
Founded in 1774 by order of the Marquis of Pombal, the city was built in less than two years. The geometric design of the Pombaline urbanism that gave birth to the city, is today its main shopping area. The streets converge to the Marques de Pombal Square, with a central obelisk and four pombalinos turrets.
Much appreciated for its mild winter, the town receives the usual visit of north European tourists seeking to enjoy the pleasant climate temperatures of this Algarve region.
The whole area is flat, allowing comfortable hiking or biking activities throughout the city. Recent Vila Real recreational dock located at the mouth of the River Guadiana is a strong investment in the tourism sector. Due to its privileged position at the mouth of the Guadiana river, in addition to the nationals, this dock welcomes ships from many countries, such as Spain, France, England and the Netherlands among others. From there, you can go up the river and enjoy the coasts views.
