The commercial town of Portimao is located on the EN 125 road in the western half of the Algarve. The town has an ancient history due to its important location at the entrance to the River Arade Estuary and protected by a small hill to its sandy beach named Praia da Rocha. The town is crowned by its 15th century Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceicao. Little is visible of medieval Portimao and the main buildings are the 18th century palace of the Viscounts of Bivar which now is home of the Municipal Council and the 17th century Jesuit College in the main square. There is also the 16th century Convento de Sao Francisco lying in sad ruins on the riverbank. Portimao was made a town in 1924 and soon became the commercial hub of the Algarve. A Boat Marina has also helped put it on the map and it has developed into a water sports centre. Fishing cruises, dolphin-watching and tourist boats trips are amongst the many available. The old entrance bridge to the town affords views down the river to the sea including the Portimao harbour in which are often berthed large cruise ships.
The large sandy beach at close by Praia da Rocha has been a popular holiday destination since the 1930s. Near to Portimao is the Autadromo Internacional do Algarve which was inaugurated in 2008. This is an up-to-date race and test circuit for Superbike races, Le Mans Series races and F1 tests. There are several golf courses within the immediate area the 36-hole Penina Golf Courses, the 18-hole Alto Club Golf Course, the 18-hole Alamos Golf Course and the 18-hole Morgado Golf Course.
