Portugal - Albufeira

Albufeira is a beach town west of Villamora.

This is the town of Albufeira looking east from the top of a cliff about 50 feet above the beach. The crane on the horizon symbolizes the new construction. Albufeira is a combination of old and new, while the Villamora marina was all new.
