Situated in one of Europe's most beautiful nature parks, Aljezur is a small, traditional market town dominated by the ruins of its hilltop Moorish Castle, which offers fine views across the surrounding countryside. The oldest surviving building, apart from the castle, is the Misericordia Church, which was built in the 16th century and rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake. There are several spectacular, unspoilt beaches in the vicinity, many of which are popular with surfers with the most accessible being Amoreira, Monte Clerigo and Arrifana. Discover and enjoy the hospitality of the local people, the Algarvean cooking and the beauty of this natural park (not yet spoilt by mass tourism). Alternatively, the brighter lights of Lagos Marina and Parque da floresta golf resort are also just a short drive away.
