Activities and attractions
This is a zone with some offers the local level, wants agricultural (fairs, markets, etc) or more tourist (golf and beaches). There is a great offer in terms of restoration.
Olhão City - The fishermen’s quarter of old Olhão is a warren of narrow, twisting streets where it is easy to become disoriented, a succession of square-sided white houses whose windows and parapets are edged with bands of grey and blue. Close by are moored the brightly coloured boats after their return from work at sea. The morning bustle of the market by the water’s edge and the outdoor terraces where you can while away the time create a fascinating kaleidoscope of
sensations for people strolling through the city, something not easily forgotten.
To discover the hidden charm of Olhão you have to go up to the top of the main church tower or some other vantage point. Only then can you see the hundreds of roof terraces - the “açoteias”,
typical of the Algarve, which create a unique urban panorama, as if a multitude of cubes had been scattered across a flat surface, their regular shapes echoing and repeating each other in three dimensions. Back at ground level it is well worth wandering through the maze-like streets of the fishermen’s quarter, which stands between the quay on the Ria Formosa and the heart of the city with the main church as the principal landmark; here much of the picturesque quality of the small white houses has been retained, with their parapets decorated with geometric motifs.
The streets that border the Avenida da República, itself a symbol of the urban development that took place at the turn of the century, show the city of industrialists and seafarers who grew rich from the fish canning business and trade; houses decorated with balconies, tiles, carved stonework and wrought iron can also be seen there. Any tour of Olhão should end among the refreshing gardens and terraces to be found along the long quayside. But first, take a few
minutes and plunge into the colourful mêlée of the market, where the stalls sell fish straight from the sea and fresh vegetables and sweet fruit from the farms of the interior.
