The Land of Almonds

The name of Algarve is "The garden of Portugal".

Numerous tourists from all over Europe visit the southern part of the area because of the beautiful beaches and warm seawaters.

The Algarve region, located at the southern tip of Portugal, is separated from the rest of the country by two mountain ranges. To the west - Sera de Monchique (of volcanic origin) and to the east - Sera de Caldeira, with limestone structure. For a long time, the two massifs, which are the boundaries of a climatic region, have isolated Algarve from the rest of the Iberian Peninsula. The heat here lasts throughout the year, which favours the cultivation of many types of Mediterranean fruit and vegetables, including citrus, figs, peaches and almonds. Almond trees with beautiful white flowers and oleaginous fruits are found at every turn in the Algarve. Since rainfall in The garden of Portugal is scarce, the Moors, who ruled the region for five centuries, built a dense network of irrigation canals.
