Algarve - The Land of Almonds

ALGARVE

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.

Sample Item 7

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
