Plaza
“The Old Town in Albufeira has over one hundred different restaurants and bars, while the nightlife scene is vibrant and social, and continues late into the night. For those groups of visitors wanting a more of a hedonistic holiday should head to New Town and “The Strip”, a street crammed with bars and clubs which actively encourages excessive drinking and partying. Great if you are a couple without kids looking for some fun.”

Point of Interest
“Considered a highlight of the city, this location is certainly worth a visit.
 Located on the Rua Bernardino Sousa, this ancient Muslim tower is part of the former district jail building.
 In the 19th century, an original iron crown was implemented to the tower, where the time bells are located.
 From the top of this tower, tourists enjoy the privileged view of the city.”
