The 365 Algarve events, the programme created in 2016 to boost the number of cultural events in the region during the so-called low season, will be held between October 2019 and May 2020.

Birdwatching & Nature Activities Festival
The 10th Birdwatching & Nature Activities Festival takes place in Sagres from 10 to 13 October 2019. Sagres is a prime place to enjoy one of nature’s most awe-inspiring displays of bird migration. Birdwatchers and nature lovers from all over Europe gather to catch a glimpse of the most extraordinary birds on their way to their wintering grounds in Africa.
As Summer ends and the weather begins to turn, a wave of birds sweeps across Europe, from north to south. Those heading to Africa have a considerable hurdle ahead: the Mediterranean. On the western side of the continent, the shortest – and therefore safest – route is across the Strait of Gibraltar. When a mishap throws the birds off route, they cross via Sagres, which is why they call it the “plain of lost birds”.

Considered to be one of the leading golf events, the Portugal Masters will take place on the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf course from the 24th- 27th of October 2019.
