The historic center, old town or Montechoro in Albufeira is one of those places that are impossible to miss, and it is because within its walls and its narrow streets, you can still see the roots, some of them are Roman but the majority are Arab, of of this village called Castillo de Mar. Its streets are typical of the Algarve, which are lined with houses or pale white tiles and have retained that peculiar style of Arabic that mixes the scent of jasmine, with narrow cobbled streets and the typical smell of a fishing village. You have to visit because its history tells us that one day, many centuries ago, it was one of the most important fortresses in the south of Portugal.
