Local Area Details

Situated a short drive 12km east of Faro Airport, Olhao is a pretty fishing town reminiscent of the typical North African villages across the sea in Morocco. The peculiarity of its architecture gives it a distinct Moorish appearance. Notable for its white cube shaped houses with terraced roofs Olhao was the scene of an historic uprising against the French garrison in 1808. Following the French departure the local fishermen sent a small vessel known as a caique across the Atlantic to Brazil to transmit the news to the exiled king Joo VI who later rewarded them with a town charter. A full size replica of the Bom Successo caique is moored at the seafront There are many fine churches in Olhao including the Baroque Nossa Senhora do Rosario parish church built on the Praia da Restaurao in 1698.

From the waterfront, ferries and water taxis link Olhao to the idyllic offshore beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol which form part of the surrounding sandbanks known as the Ilhas. Just 1km to the east is the renowned Ria Formosa Nature Reserve Park, a protected area featuring a wide variety of flora and fauna. An exhibition of agricultural and fishing techniques includes the remains of a Roman salt production plant and a rare tidal mill dating back to the Middle Ages.
