Officially known as Olhão da Restauração, this Algarvian city is located near the region's capital, Faro, and it is a great destination if you are looking for the comfort of the big city, but far away from the crowds. The city is very famous for its resistance during the French invasion in 1808 when Olhão was responsible for an uprising against the invaders. This situation culminated in the expulsion of the French army from the entire Algarve and after the elevation of Olhão, to the category of Vila. Since then, the city developed into one of the biggest locations in the Algarve.
