Cândido dos Reis Street, Albufeira

Vice Admiral Carlos dos Reis would be amused to walk down the shopping street of Albufeira named for him. He was a leader of the Revolution of 1910 that overthrew the royal house and established the Portuguese Republic. On the night of October 3rd 1910, he proclaimed, "If there is one that fulfills his duty, this one will be me."

Candido dos Reis is a familiar street name in Portugal. The street is known locally as Bar Street. It is narrow, pedestrianized and paved with tiles. There are numerous small shops and stalls. A short walk from the main square there are more than a few branch streets but none as unique as the Candido dos Reis Street.

Exotic clothes and leather boutiques, original gift shops, kiosks with odds and ends and items not found in many other places make for a mini shopping safari. Many houses can still be seen with the traditional tiled facades. Palm trees and festive colored canopies offer shade.
