Algarve coast: vacation in Portugal for lovers of the ocean

One of the novelties of the spring / summer 2019 season was the flight program from Kiev to Faro, Algarve region, Portugal. So, it’s time to get acquainted with the resorts and choose your tour to Portugal!

History and Geography
The city of Faro (Faro) is the center of the southernmost part of Portugal – the province of the Algarve. This is a seaport and air gate for all resorts located on the coast. The resort is small, no more than 70 thousand people live here permanently. Not all tourists stop in Faro, many continue on their way to other resort towns in the Algarve, for example, Lagos, Vilamoura, Albufeira.

Pillars of red color represent fire, which paves the way to heaven through cleansing. If the sculpture is surrounded by red pillars, then the character that it symbolizes has reached the true purity of the upper world, is close to the gods or is himself a god.

Why erected multi-tiered roofs?
The multi-tiered roofs of eastern buildings evoke the constant admiration of modern people. You can peer for a long time at the soft and at the same time strict lines that gradually divert your gaze from solid earth into the vast sky, where the divine power is concentrated. Continue reading
