Boats on the Guadiana River, Alcoutim

3-Days Remote Alcoutim

Alcoutim was infamous for many years of intense smuggling: tabacco, fabrics, sugar, coffee... were passed across the border between Portugal & Spain. The smugglers were risking their life in the strong tidal Guadiana river... Luckily those days are long gone and peace has restored in one of my favourite remote places in the Algarve.
