In contrast, Portimão is well-known for its recent history as a seaside resort. What most people don’t know is that tourism here dates back to the late 19th century, when the first aristocrats arrive​d and promote​d the construction of the first hotels and the casino along the popular Praia da Rocha. Besides th​ese lively tourist attractions, the city has a rich history in the canning industry, having at its peak more than a dozen working factories, an example of which ​has been reproduced in the city’s museum. We’ll also enjoy the view of the Arade River and the town of Ferragudo across from the Manuel Teixeira Gomes square. A visit to the Portimão Museum is included.
