The town of Aljezur is an interesting place. Deriving from the word “Aljuzur” meaning “Islands” in Arabic, Aljezur has very remote origins marked by various archaeological findings. Remnants in the area have helped discover that the area was at least inhabited since pre-history by tribes of nomadic hunter-gatherers fishing in the region. The Muslim Occupation in the 10th and 11th century resulted in the larget expansion of the region, building many castles and settlements in the area. Aljezur has a vast and beautiful landscape that visitors should see for themselves. Nature parks mix with clifftop landscapes and seafronts with biking and hiking trails connecting them. Museums, mountains and historic paths are all there for guests to see and explore for themselves.
