Vila Real de Santo António The Essential
This border town, founded in 1774 by the marquis of Pombal, to rival the Andalusian town of Guadiana, was built in 5 months. It has become one of the largest fishing ports in the Algarve and a important fish-canning centre. Here they also build pleasure boats for export. Since 1992, it has been possible to reach Spain by bridge or by ferry.
