Proud of its castle walls, Albufeira is not just a picturesque old fishing village, although it has preserved the traditional lines that make it so distinctive. The town is imbued with the history of bygone days - from the time of the Romans, who called the town “Baltum”, to the Moors, who in the 18th century gave it the name “Al-Buhera” (Castle of the Sea), the origin of the town’s present-day name.
Feast your eyes on the blue and serene beauty of the sea, clusters of whitewashed houses with lace-patterned chimneys and narrow colourful streets. This is the irresistible attraction that INATEL Albufeira invites its visitors to enjoy.
