A bit off topic I'm afraid. Why does the Camara persist with calcadas on pavements where there is the chance to replace them with something quicker to lay and safer to walk on - perhaps tarmac or slabs?

They tried slabs in some places but they got very slippery when wet. I have the feeling that the calçada is part of the 'heritage'. Also the loose lay does allow a certain amount of rain to drain through rather than rush down the hills.

Some bits had an anti-skid surface laid but that's been worn away now.

But definitely a trip hazard!

"Still pottering away. Someone changed the sign that said '2 months' to '12 months'."


After staying in Castro Marim we'll be in this area of the old town Albufeira in about 3 weeks. It would be nice to think the work would be complete by then, but I doubt it.

I doubt that too.
Yesterday they were busy with 3 men to put the Stones in it and a piece of asphalt is still
needs to be paved.
The pavements along the asphalt must also be repaired....

Maybe some of the manual resources is being taken up with the work being done on Rua Pacifico.
Never put off something that you could do today

Nothing was happening in Bar Street when I walked through on Tuesday. Work continues in the big hole near the pier.
