Aljezur and the Algarve

Situated in one of Europe's most beautiful nature parks, Aljezur has everything for either a 'laid back' or an active holiday.

Aljezur and the Algarve Portugal

Discover and enjoy the hospitality of the people, the Algarvean cooking, the beauty of this natural park (not yet spoilt by mass tourism) and, of course, the wonderful weather. Aljezur is about 30km north of Lagos on the N120 and is situated in a lush, green, fertile valley, an area well known for it's sweet potato crops. It is built on either side of the river that runs through the valley...the old town being on one side and the new town on the other. The remains of a Moorish 10th century castle can be seen high on the hill over the old town and the views from there are fantastic! Legend has it that the Knights of Santiago under Dom Paio Peres took the castle without a fight one night in 1249 when a Moorish maiden opened the door and let them in.
