The Algarve Portugal - the south coast  May 24th - 27th


The southern coast of Portugal is packed with beach resort towns. The water is a beautiful turquoise blue. The coast ranges from sandy beaches to rocky cliffs. Everything on the land is green or white painted buildings. As usual we tried to visit the less populated areas. They still exist, but are disappearing fast.



Main square in Tavira, Portugal.




Carousel in the park along the Rio Gilas. Carousel's are very popular. We have seen them everywhere in Portugal.




Hotel courtyard in Tavira. This was unusual because it was painted gold not white. A real eye catcher.

Our free spot for the night at Cape Sagres on the western tip of Portugal.

Sagres Fort and Navigator School



In the 18th century a fort was built at Cape Sagres.





In 1420 Prince Henry the Navigator built a school to teach navigation. This is the chapel they prayed in before setting out.
