The area that is now the municipality of Sao Bras de Alportel, in common with the Algarve as a whole, was inhabited in prehistoric times and in the days of the Romans. The area's extensive plantations of cork oak provided a spring board for commercial and industrial development and for years Sao Bras de Alportel was the biggest cork producing centre in Portugal and the world. Its increasing population and economic importance led to the creation of the municipality in 1914. The tranquil, unhurried lifestyle of the friendly local population. Streets of white houses whose ranks are broken only by the lofty outline of the church and its bell tower. The ring of hills around, the town that looks out on the sea and the mountains. Such are the simple charms of São Brás de Alportel, a typical Algarve town.
