Mexilhoeira Grande

Located in the municipality of Portimão, Mexilhoeira Grande stands out for its presence of rural and agricultural spaces, providing a sense of tranquility and connection with nature while promoting sustainable development, aiming to preserve the natural environment. The parish has a strategic location and offers easy access to other areas of the Algarve, as well as beaches, urban areas, and nearby tourist attractions.


The local community is known for its hospitality in a welcoming environment, an aspect often appreciated by visitors or residents in the parish. Traditional crafts and agriculture are the main activities in the village, in addition to tourism, which is gaining increasing importance.


Like many locations in the Algarve, Mexilhoeira Grande has a valuable historical heritage, where churches, chapels, and other ancient buildings tell the story of the parish over the years. The Main Church of Mexilhoeira Grande, built in the early 16th century and subsequently subjected to significant renovations, exhibits distinct characteristics of Manueline, Renaissance, and Baroque styles in Portugal. The Church of Casa da Misericórdia ( translated: Holy House of Mercy) of Mexilhoeira Grande, built between the late 16th and early 17th centuries, is another historical treasure that enriches the village's heritage.


Also noteworthy are the Megalithic Monuments of Alcalar, recognized as a National Monument and an important point of interest in the Algarve, by both residents and tourists alike. From an archaeological point of view, this is one of the most important sites in the region, standing out for the abundance and significance of the artifacts discovered. Furthermore, it provides a detailed insight into the settlement and necropolis, allowing for a socio-cultural and historical understanding of this ancient community.


Mexilhoeira Grande is certainly a captivating place, characterized by its simplicity, natural environment, and historical richness. This popularity is due to its stunning landscape and proximity to the infrastructure of Portimão, Lagos and Monchique, as well as the picturesque fishing village of Alvor. It has become increasingly popular among both national and international buyers looking for rural properties in spacious areas, as well as for those interested in individual or semi-detached houses in well-maintained neighborhoods and condominiums.
