The Algarve is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal. It has an area of approximately 5,400 square kilometres (2,000 sq mi), it incorporates 16 municipalities. The Algarve region coincides with the administrative Faro District, and has as its administrative centre the city of Faro, where both the region's international airport at Faro (FAO) and public university (the University of the Algarve) are located. In Portugal we have an expression more or less like this “a picture says more than thousand words” so we share with you a promotional video of the Algarve tourism bureau.
From Faro you can reach the best golf courses in the Algarve, Algarve was named several times as The best Golf Holiday destination in Europe by the British Magazine “Today's Golfer” and “The New York Times”.
