Visit the historic fishing village of Olhão, sample the taste of the traditional coastal delicacies, and find the best way to immerse yourself in the fish culture of the Algarve.

Learn about the history of Olhão, how its people fought to turn it from a village into a town, and how the seamen´s hard work transformed Olhão into a major economic, social and urban center.

Let yourself be guided through the exciting fish and fruit markets, meet and talk with local charismatic vendors, and sample the seasonal products. 

Come and taste some of the best, fresh, authentic and innovative products from our Mediterranean diet in typical "tascas" and restaurants.

You will be walking through unbelievably narrow alleys, quaint little squares full of stories to unravel, and falling in love with the iconic whitewashed traditional houses.

Sense the daily life of Olhão, one of the most genuine towns in the whole of Portugal.
