Fishing Boats In Cacela Velha

Fishing boats docked in Cacela Velha, Algarve, south of Portugal.

Cacela Velha (meaning “Old Cacela” in Portuguese) is a village located in the civil parish of Vila Nova de Cacela, municipality of Vila Real de Santo Antonio, Algarve, Portugal. Cacela Velha is situated on top of a hill with a view to the easternmost lagoon of the Ria Formosa. Cacela Velha and the surrounding towns were a stopover for Greek and Phoenician navigators, and according to some authors it may have once been near the location of Conistorgis, the still-unrecovered capital of the Conii. Roman and Arab occupiers also played a significant role in the expansion of the region.
