Vad du kommer att göra

Olhão's identity is a tangled web weaved by fishing and the fishing industry.
Fishing is a general concern to any town in the Algarve, but Olhão still embodies that character to this day, which also explains its "subversive" behaviour. It is also the most authentic town on the eastern side of the region due to the fact that most of its historical and popular neighbourhoods were left intact after its expansion in the recent years.
This walk will give you a full view and a comprehensive guide through the city's historical development while focusing on its untouched vernacular core.
If you're all about walking and if you have even the slightest curiosity about architecture and its impact on a city's image and history, tag along and let's explore the streets of Olhão together!
Other things to note
Drastic times call for drastic measures and these days Covid-19 containment recommendations may change weekly. This experience will be adapted to the governmental measures implemented at any given time. I look forward to meeting you guys and showing you around, but I’m also looking after our safety.

Born and raised in the city; have lived here for the longest part of my life. The food is great, the weather is priceless but growing up I only cared about finding the best way to go around it. I believe this is what got me into majoring in Art & Architecture History and why I might be just the right person for this walk, aside from my sense of humour. But that's just my guess. Why not make yours?

Var ni kommer att vara

We will meet just by Olhão's Main Church, the perfect location to stroll throughout its most authentic neighbourhoods. This tour also gives you a comprehensive guide of any building that falls out of the "vernacular" umbrella term, meaning that along the way we'll get the chance of seeing lots of perky but also traditional ways of building that are a little bit more sophisticated. It's all in here, let's go already!

Der Rundgang mit Ell war sehr interessant und spannend. Wir haben viel über die Architektur von Portugal im Allgemeinen und Olhão im Besonderen gelernt. Empfehlenswert für alle mit Interesse an Geschichte. Ell erzählt lebhaft und mit Leidenschaft, macht Spaß ihm zuzuhören.

This was our second tour with Ell. After thoroughly enjoying our first tour around Faro the night before, we did this tour the following morning around Olhao. Maybe due to Covid, but we loved that it was private tour with just us and Ell. He was so knowledgeable and answered any questions we asked of him. He pointed out lots of little things that we would never notice, and taught us lots about the area, including some very good places to eat and things to do! Highly recommended!

Participating in the tour we learned a great deal about the history of the small and charming Olhao. Ell was a great guide and had an answer to all our questions and lots of little anecdotes.

It was a really informative and funny tour on portuguese history and architecture in the local context. You will walk definitely with other eyes through the streets after the experience with Ell! And if you still got questions he got an answer :) Thanks also for the little personal guide for Faro!
