In recent years Olhão has been attracting more and more international artists of various backgrounds. Some of them are just passing through and others, inspired by the beautiful light and stunning views of the Ria Formosa, decided to make this picturesque fishing town with its rough edges their permanent place of residence.
As most artists have a tendency to flock together, it was no surprise that some of them decided to have a joint exhibition in the beautiful New Gallery of the Museu do Trajo in São Brás.
The award winning Talking Heads TV Monologues, by Alan Bennett, are fondly remembered by many from the two series that ran in the 80s and 90s. They are now included within the English examination system for English and drama, bringing these excellently written pieces to a whole new audience.
Many of the themes are relevant to our society today and Alan Bennett has a fabulous knack of making the mundane sound like a humorous blockbuster movie, yet still full of massive warmth and understanding of the human condition.

It was probably one of the most dramatic events held by Algarve Classic Cars, Historic Regularity Rally, organized for 23 years by the Portuguese Classic Cars Club (CPAA) and entered in the calendar of the Portuguese Federation of Automobiles and Carting.
The program began late afternoon on Friday, July 10th, with the Casino Vilamoura circuit, integrated as the Murganheira Stage. Despite the heat, the public turned out in high numbers watching a great show with competitors as diverse as an Austin A35 with only a 850cc engine and, for example, the most powerful being the Porsche 911.
Portugal4U, the organisers 1st Armação de Pêra PhotoMarathon would like to thank all the participants who took part in the 1st Armação de Pêra PhotoMarathon.

We have received reports of thefts that have, in the last week or so, taken place in supermarket car parks in the Algarve. One of these was in Aldi, Lagoa and another in Aldi in Almancil, and another in Aldi Lagos. There may be more.
The typical MO is that the victim is distracted, through someone asking directions, and another takes the opportunity to steal a handbag.
