Strategic Location

The Port of Faro is an important port infrastructure serving the Algarve region.

Located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean, it is endowed for serving the region, being essential for the Algarve economy.

The cement produced on the Cimpor plant, in Loulé, is the principal export cargo, especially for Algeria and Cabo Verde. The port also handles rock, iron and tile, sent to Gibraltar, as well as the Algarve’s carob, exported to England, the salt from Olhão, the rock-salt from Loulé and the tuna fish exported to Japan.
