In addition to the mild climate, beaches, and internationally recognized golf courses, Albufeira also has a very rich gastronomy.
Here, fish and seafood owe their freshness to the proximity of the sea and the long tradition of fishing. Enjoy a unique and vast gastronomic experience and try some of our regional dishes: fish stew, seafood cataplana, tuna onions, grilled sardines, octopus rice and chicken guide with or without chili.
An excellent time to visit the county is during the various culinary events that take place throughout the year. The Guia chicken festival and the Sardinha festival are the two festivals that take place in August, the Fisherman's festival takes place on the first weekend of September and the Gastronomy festival at the end of the same month.
