The Art Gallery takes its name from one of Albufeira’s most famous citizens, and can be found in the old Electrical Power Station, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. In 1988, the building was revamped and transformed into an Art Gallery.

Off the main square in Albufeira this is a free gallery but this years exhibition was quite uninspiring. It only takes a minute to walk through. Good public washrooms are right beside the gallery.
