Ferragudo

Vila pescatória no Municipio de Lagoa.

Fishing village in Lagoa Municipality




Ferragudo é uma aldeia no concelho de Lagoa, na região do Algarve. Situada no extremo poente do município, tem 5,41 km² de área e cerca de 2000 habitantes.

Esta aldeia oferece um dos mais bonitos postais de visita ao Algarve. Uma encosta cheia de casas típicas, um muro de pedra que divide a terra, do mar que entra por um rio até quase à porta dos habitantes, e os barcos de madeira fundeados quase ao acaso a completar a paisagem.


The attractive fishing village of Ferragudo has done a good job of avoiding the wholesale development that has affected much of this part of the Algarve. This is even more impressive considering its location at the mouth of the Rio Arade estuary, right across the water from the tourist hotspots of Portimão and Praia da Rocha. It is something of a wonder how the village has retained much of its traditional charm given its sprawling neighbours and prime location. To describe it has a hidden gem may be going too far, but as it hovers on the edge of the tourist radar it remains largely unspoilt.
