Exciting tours of Portugal
Typical view of the AlgarveThe Algarve is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal, incorporating, amongst other localities, the cities of Faro, Albufeira, Lagoa, Lagos, Loulé, Olhão, Portimão, Quarteira, Silves, Tavira, and Vila Real de Santo António. The Algarve is one of the Regions of Portugal according to NUTS II subdivisions. The region coincides with the district of Faro, and has as its administrative centre the city of Faro, where are located both the region's international airport (Faro Airport) and public university (University of the Algarve).  Tourism and related activities are extensive and make up the bulk of the Algarve's summer economy. Fish, seafood and fruit production, which includes oranges, carob beans, figs and almonds, are important activities in the region.

The Algarve is a popular destination for tourism, primarily because of its beaches, Mediterranean climate, safety and relatively low costs. The length of the south-facing coastline is approximately 155 kilometres. Beyond the westernmost point of Cape St. Vincent it stretches a further 50 kilometres to the north. The coastline is notable for picturesque limestone caves and grottoes, particularly around Lagos, which are accessible by powerboat. Praia da Marinha, Lagoa was classified as one of the 100 most beautiful and well preserved beaches of the world. There are many other beautiful and famous summer places such as Albufeira, Vilamoura, Portimão, Lagos, Armação de Pêra, Quarteira, Monte Gordo and Tavira. It is also host to the annual Algarve Cup invitational tournament for national teams in women's football.

Pousada de Faro - Palacio de Estoi   Historic Pousada
The Pousada de Estoi is set in the old 19th century Estoi Palace, which used to belong to the Viscount of Estoi, José Francisco da Silva. The palace took 20 years to build and in May 1909 a huge party was thrown in the gardens to celebrate the inauguration.  After the Viscount’s death, the palace remained in the family until 1987, at which time it was acquired by the Faro Municipal Council. Besides the main building, the tea pavilions and Versailles-style gardens are still being renovated. The Palácio de Estoi is a new Pousada de Portugal since May'09, a project signed by Gonçalo Byrne, a famous Portuguese architect.
