Top 5 travel tips in Olhão

Book a holiday letting in Olhão to explore the region's culture and cuisine

id="tip-1"1. See the replica of the Caravela Bom Sucesso

After Portugal gained independence from French rule, 17 fishermen sailed to Brazil from Olhão without any navigational equipment. They did so to advise the royal family that they could leave exile. This incredible journey took place in 1808. You can visit a replica of the boat that they used to make this incredible journey during your time here in Olhão. The replica is moored in the town's harbour in front of the Municipal Market.

id="tip-2"2. Enjoy the wonderful local cuisine

Olhão is famed for its superb offering of local food that is waiting for you to discover. While the harbourfront restaurants are outstanding, we also recommend spending some time exploring the pretty streets in town to find some wonderful eateries. A few suggestions of restaurants to check out around the area include Vai e Volta, Delícia de Olhão, Pizza Na Pedra and Chaminé.

id="tip-3"3. Taste the local oysters

There is nothing quite like the luxurious experience that comes along with tasting an oyster that was plucked from the sea just hours before you eat it. Olhão is famed for its oyster beds that will be right on your doorstep. Given this fact, you can enjoy the freshest version of these seafood delights whenever the mood strikes. We recommend heading to Olhão's local Mercado to sample the freshest oysters and equally fresh mussels, fish, crabs and clams.

id="tip-4"4. Visit the Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosário

The Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosário is an extraordinary church located in Olhão that was constructed with funds that were raised by the local fishermen's mutual society. It features an astonishing five altars that are adorned with gilded woodwork. This structure was built at the end of the 17th century though it was completed during the early 18th.

id="tip-5"5. Step back in time at the Museu Municipal de Olhão

Another one of the most unique tourist experiences in Olhão is a visit to the Museu Municipal de Olhão. It is a palatial museum building that houses archaeological dig findings such as ancient coins. It is also home to some more recent historical treasures from the town. The museum is located in a beautiful 18th-century building and is a must for history lovers. Those who love discovering the fascinating history of this corner of Portugal might also consider booking holiday lettings in Tavira. It is located just 25 minutes to the northeast and is renowned for its historic centre with popular attractions that include Tavira Castle, a Roman-era bridge and the Igreja da Misericórdia. This is also a popular spot for nature lovers as it is close to Ria Formosa Natural Park.
