Postcard-worthy coastlines brushing against crystal clear water, stunning cliffs plunging into the rocky waves below, and awe-inspiring vistas that will leave you speechless – this is the Algarve. The southernmost region of Portugal, the Algarve is home to the perfect combination of historical architecture and sandy beaches. Although every area of the Algarve offers unique charms and is the perfect setting for a relaxing getaway, some of the preferred cities of this region include Lagos, Faro, Tavira, and Sagres. While in the Algarve, make sure you sample some of the fresh seafood, indulge in the local figs and oranges, and maybe even buy a piece of intricately painted pottery.
