Although this ancient coastal village is now a very popular holiday location the enclosed narrow streets have kept development to a minimum.
Many of these streets now boast bars with live music and different types of restaurants, however leading off from these there are still memories of the older fishing village. In the area are a number of holiday resorts from which the tourists enjoy visiting it and its attractions.
The village is well located facing a natural lagoon opening onto the sea. There is a choice of a long open sandy beach or a number of small coves tucked under the cliffs.
The originally 16th Century Parish Church was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1755 and still has a prime example in its main doorway of the great craftsmanship of the Manueline era of architecture. It was the only building that more or less survived from the earthquake.
In Alvor you can find and enjoy some of the best beaches in the Algarve. From the long sandy beach of Alvor, already rated and awarded internationaly, to the cozy tinny beaches enclosed in the rocks in and almost unspoiled environment.
