The Algarve is a destination beloved by tourists and sun-worshippers. This chart concentrates on the westernmost section, from the city of Portimao to the most westerly point of Sao Vicente, and then extends in a northern direction as far as Praia da Zimbreirina. Potimao is a port city and historically was a fishing and shipbuilding centre. It is now a thriving tourist location. Moving west from Portimao, you can see Alvor and the historic city of Lagos.

The landmass is positioned slightly to the north of the chart to allow for the display of the compass rose which extends over the chart edge. This gives a sense of balance and artistic interest. The overall look is simple and uncluttered. Surround lighting built into the frame enhances the chart which is finished with a white frame and mount combination.
