If you’re lucky enough to visit during Easter time, the Flower Torches Festival is a must-see event, traditionally occurring every Easter Sunday. The streets are lined with red carpets and ‘torches’ made from bunches of flowers are carried from the church throughout the town. Another big day for the country is Liberation Day on 25th April, a day filled with fireworks, entertainment and music. Celebrating Liberation Day is a nationwide occurrence, but is a big deal in the Algarve, so is one to definitely look out for!
Useful Info for Visiting Algarve
The local currency is the Euro, and some credit and debit cards are accepted in larger establishments due to the amount of tourists passing through. However, it’s best to check for any transaction charges that may incur before you travel.
The national language is Portuguese, and although there may be locals who know some English, it’s useful to know some basic phrases (and they’d appreciate the effort too). Greet someone by saying ola (hello), say please with por favor and, most importantly, you can thank someone by saying obrigado.
