Ferragudo is one of the most beautiful village landscapes by the sea that can be found all over the Algarve. Bathed by the Arade river, the quiet village of Ferragudo preserves a fruitful geological condition that men knew how to take advantage of.
Embracing the waters of the sea and the river, Ferragudo was born around the 18th century. XIV. Fishermen, who sought sustenance for their families in the sea, settled in this place, building humble huts. However, there are vestiges that attest human presence in Ferragudo during the prehistoric period. Moreover, the river bank was also a target for the Phoenicians and Carthaginians. The Romans also settled camp, dedicating themselves to fishing and the salt industry of the fish. There are several archeological findings next to the Fort S. João do Arade that prove these settlements.
