Sao Bras town Easter festival

São Bras de Alportel was once the centre of Portugal's cork industry and as such is nestled in an area dotted with cork and pine trees. Although the industry has now relocated, the town's former riches are still very noticeable in the architecture of its residential and commercial buildings.

Indeed, property in São Bras de Alportel is a mix of traditionally modest Algarvian houses, grander, former merchant houses and some contemporary additions in the outskirts of town.

Alongside the main town square with shops and restaurants, there are numerous clusters of shops, bars and eateries scattered throughout the town. Meandering through these is a wonderful pastime as the buildings are well worth a closer look and the food at local restaurants is well worth tucking into. Try out the cheap and cheerful Chicken Piri Piri at Luis do Frango, better known by expats as ‘Chicken Joes’.

The keen bargain hunter is well catered for in São Bras de Alportel with a gypsy market held every Saturday and a flea market on every third Sunday of the month.

Notable landmarks include the town's main church and the Algarve's first pousada built in the 1940s. Pousadas are traditional hotels, originally owned by the state to encourage local travel and the upkeep of traditions. The fact one was built in São Bras de Alportel is an official seal of approval for the town, its setting, pleasant atmosphere and facilities.
