Alvor, Portimão - Algarve - PORTUGAL

This card is a nice memory of a wild weekend I've spent with five special friends - every year we get together (without our wives)  to three days of ... (sorry, can't give any details). This year we went to Alvor in Algarve, a small village filled with very nice restaurants and bars and one of the most beautiful beach in Algarve (Praia dos Três Irmãos). It's signed by all the six "members of the brotherhood". This postcard took 7 days to arrive!

Alvor, Portimão - Algarve - PORTUGAL

Alvor is a civil parish in the municipality of Portimão, in the southern Algarve, Portugal. It was founded in 436 by the Carthaginian General Aníbal Barca as a commercial port, which he named Portus Hannibali. Taken by the Moors in 716, the settlement began to be referred to as Albur, and gained an impressive castle. Alvor is now a very popular holiday location, the enclosed narrow streets have kept development to a minimum. Many of these streets now boast bars with live music and different types of restaurants.
