Almonds are amongst Algarve´s trademarks. Almonds are everywhere! The agricultural production was introduced by the Arabs and is documented since the 12th century. It is a big part of Algarve´s economy and it can be used with different purposes, because of the many benefits known to it. Cosmetic, pharmaceutical and of course, in the food industry.
The pastries are definitely our favorite, although the consumption of raw almonds is world wide medically advised. Specially in cancer prevention therapies. Eat your almonds!
