Resort Summary

A well-known historical area among the Portuguese people, Alvor is where one of the country’s most illustrious leaders King Joao II died in 1495. That period in time is depicted in some of the remains of the area such as the 16th century Matriz de Alvor church, with its beautiful Manueline Gothic arches and lavishly detailed altar, though much of it was rebuilt in the 18th century in a Rococo style.

While the charming properties and gorgeous cobbled streets of the old village are the main feature of this quaint area, on the main street you’ll find modern bars and restaurants where you can look down right onto the harbour, which sits on the Alvor River’s lagoon.
