It's so easy to get wrapped up in lounging poolside or heading to the beach without having a proper look around at the fascinating history of places like Albufeira. Glad we got to see it.

The statue represents the area of San Vicente (St Vincent) and is important from both a historical and religious point of view. Unfortunately the building which ajoins it is derelict and an absolute eyesore. In its day it must have been a beautiful building.

Statue of Jesuit missionary who was born in Albufeira in the 16th century and went to Japan as one of the first travelers trying to persuade the local population to convert to Christianity and I believe was martyred.
