Porto Covo

A few years back Porto Covo was immortalized by a famous portuguese singer in one of his most famous songs. From a small fishermen village it became a huge tourist place which is invaded by crowds from July to September.

It was my first visit and loved it...

Pessegueiro Island with it's old fort destroyed in the 1755 earthquake

and the fort on the coast opposite the island, they were supposed to protect the coast from pirate attacks...
