Olhão is the main fishing port in the Algarve, that’s why the indoor fish market of Olhão is the best place in the Algarve to buy fresh fish and seafood. The fishermen, legendary figures of Olhão, deliver their catch direct to the market stalls.
Olhão is known as a ‘Cubist City’, from the main tower of the church, Nossa Senhora do Rosário, the highest point in the city, you can appreciate and be enchanted by the hidden part of Olhão, o Bairro dos Pescadores. This historic area of the city, with its curious houses with cubist shapes and Moorish style flat roofs, gives a great view of the sea and the returning fishing boats.
