Welcome to São Brás De Alportel
The quiet country town of São Brás de Alportel (SBA) provides a welcome break from the coast. While there are few attractions in the town proper, it’s a pleasant place to stroll. Excellent activities in the surrounding area include a guided cork walking route. SBA was a hotspot in the 19th-century heyday of cork, and there are still 10 prospering factories around the town. It lies in a valley in the olive-, carob-, fig- and almond-wooded Barrocal region, a lush limestone area between the mountains and the sea.
