Typical touristical "old town", nice but crowdy... If You want to see some people and street entertainment in the evening, this is a nice place to stay. Please do take a room outside the centre because you wont sleep

This was the only part of Albufeira we found that hadn’t been spoilt by overdevelopment. A peaceful oasis away from crowds.
