    Hi :) One correctio: caldeirada doesn't have rice. It' made of olive oil. onion, tomato, potatoes and several fish (not shellfish). When you will came back again to Portugal I will invite you to a real Caldeirada ;)

    Thanks for the nice page on Albufeira! I too think that you are correct regarding the 'rat trap' tip! The beaches are beautiful, as you say. We were the opposite of you - the weather was great but there was no time to really slow down!

    I think you are right about the rat trap, I went to Albufeira in May and it was just perfect.
