Ria Formosa Voted one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal

The Ria Formosa... Voted one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal

Competing with another 323 locations across the country, the Ria Formosa Estuary and Natural Park was recently elected as one of the 7 Natural Wonder of Portugal. The sotavento ecosystem obtained the most votes in the category of Marine Areas. This recognition will most certainly reinforce the potential market of nature tourism in the Algarve; such as bird watching.

The President of the Algarve Tourism Board, Nuno Aires states: "This distinction reveals the great esteem that the Portuguese - and we share - for this the natural landscape. I truly believe that the election will give a new impulse to the nature tourism in the Algarve, a product that we have worked on the last few years, and that will help the Ria's preservation".

San Lorenzo can only express content and pride in sharing this prize... as we all know we benefit from the breath-taking and marvel of the Ria Formosa every single day.
