Portimão is very popular for its restaurants, bars and nightlife, as well as the excellent beaches and Marina.

In the 15th century the city wall was built, followed by the Fortaleza de Santa Catarina (fortress) and the Fortaleza de São João (fortress) on the other side of the river. Portimão increased in size, becoming in the nineteenth century an important center of fishing and canning industry. In the twentieth century, tourism strengthens the expansion of the city.
