Lit up at night the tower greets everyone to the old part of Albufeira. You can see it as you walk through town, although in itself it is nothing special, just adds character to the town.

Chapel situated opposite the museum but closed to the general public. Has attached the old hospital and in the courtyard there is ongoing excavation work of old Moorish storage buildings. Built around 1800 with working bell tolling the hours.

What a bell-tower! Located in The Old Town of Albufeira and part of the former hospital. Especially at night it is a beauty.

Very pretty landmark. We were staying close to the clocktower, and I certainly remember being woken early each day by the chiming of the clock bell. Make sure you don't get a hotel next to it....unless you are an early riser.
