After Faro, Portimao is the most important commercial centre in the Algarve and the main hub for the regions thriving sardine-canning, leisure cruise and big game fishing industries. Attracted by the natural harbour on the wide estuary of the River Arade, the Romans settled here, promptly naming it Portus Hannibalis. It was captured by the Portuguese in 1250 after five centuries of Moorish rule.

Today, Portimao is a cosmopolitan port with high-quality restaurants, modern shopping centres and a large, bustling market.

Dating back to the 14th century, the church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição features impressive 17th- and 18th-century azulejo glazed tiles. It was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1755. Nearby, the 17th-century Jesuits college boasts the largest church in the Algarve. Decorated with gilt-covered wood carvings, the church houses the tomb of the colleges founder, Diogo Gonçalves.

Praia da Rocha, 2 km south of Portimao, was one of the first seaside resorts to emerge in the Algarve. Backed by sandstone cliffs, its famous 2-km-long stretch of golden, sandy beach is interrupted by rock formations which the sea has sculpted into remarkable shapes, complete with tunnels and arches.

The Carthaginian, Hannibal, is believed to have founded the pleasant little village of Alvor on the shores of a lagoon 8 km to the west of Portimao. Its parish church is dedicated to the Holy Saviour and dates from the 16th century.
