To attract tourists is fundamental in Algarve and for Algarve.
Not only bars and hotels plan their animation programs to call or fix the clients, but also the local authorities have that concern. So, don't get surprised if, for instance, in a quick visit to Sagres, you find a Moroccan or Turkish girl performing... belly dance.
The truth is that Sagres is a must in the world history, but now it has not much to see.
Why not, putting there something else? The fact is that my weekend visit was planned to last 15 minutes and it took more than one hour.
It must be an excellent location to a big catch. That's the only way to explain the hard work of those men, that, from the top of the cliffs inside the fort of Sagres, show their skills, fishing and sliding a basket down the line to catch the fish, almost invisible at that distance.
That's the reason why each fisherman has always a group of curious and interested observers.
A few months ago, one of them felt down - take care!
