Full description
Olhão is a patchwork of white cubes which earned it the epithet of the “cubist” city. Your visit to the city of the sea includes a stroll on the waterfront avenue near the Ria Formosa, an area filled with gardens, restaurants, and café terraces. Here, you can explore the colorful atmosphere of the Municipal Market, which fulfills its traditional function by day and is the setting for lively nightlife in the evening.

Next, it’s time to discover the Ria Formosa Natural Park. You will set off to see migratory birds and plants growing in dry or marshy soil. You will also see the famous water-dogs, an indigenous once-endangered species, whose survival is guaranteed by the park. The Ria Formosa Natural Park covers an area of 17,000 hectares and provides the opportunity to discover the wonderful world of the fauna and flora of this part of the Algarve coast.
