Estombar guide


Estombar is located in the district of Lagoa, very close to Portimao located south off the EN125 and our Estombar guide starts with telling you that the settlement gained town status in 1991 and that it features the nearby Rio Arade salt field which are very well prized in the Algarve.

Guia guide
