Ria de Alvor.

The Ria de Alvor (Alvor Estuary) is situated in the Algarve, Portugal, between the towns of Lagos and Portimão. Its 1700 hectares comprise the estuary, dunes, marshes and salt-pans, as well as the Quinta da Rocha and Abicada peninsulas with their mixed habitats of brushwood, forest and agricultural land. It was designated a Natura 2000 site (PTCON0058) due to the presence of species and habitats that are a European priority. Although the Ria de Alvor is a relatively small area within the scope of the Natura 2000 network in Portugal, its intrinsic value in terms of biodiversity deserves recognition (and was a contributing factor in its classification as a Natura 2000 site):

Olá Eduardo

Espero que sejas bem.

Foi a nossa decima terceira visita a Algerve, mas não durante os últimos três anos.

Gosto de camarão e bacalhau mas sempre sinto a falta dela traditional cerveja inglesa sem gás

Abraço Peter
