Old Town Square, Albufeira (must see)
Shops along the square offer a variety of goods, including beach toys, T-shirts, wines and Portuguese liqueurs. The free Art Gallery is in a former power station. It mainly features the work of Albufeira artist, Jose Barros. Cobblestone and mosaic patterned streets branch off from the square in every direction.
The square is lined with buildings with tile wall designs, iron balconies laden with flowers. Bar-hopping among the exotic pubs and music venues is a favorite sport at night. The square is a nexus point of the beach and the Old Town streets.
