For several years, it was a place of worship for St. Joseph, patron of the naval carpenters who worked in the shipyards near to this place. Inside, some baroque traces. The tiled flooring enhances the gold-framed frame with the image of Christ crucified. The exterior is a little run down. It is closed to the public, opening only for Eucharistic celebrations, on Sundays at 5:00 p.m.

Igreja Matriz
Main Church of Portimão

The late-Gothic portal is inspired by the most imposing monument of the time, the Monastery of Batalha and in it are identified fine sculptures of musicians and women in frame. Various styles, such as Baroque, Rococo and Manueline styles, are the fruit of the various phases of reconstruction and artistic enrichment of the temple.

Church of the College of the Jesuits 

Located in the Alameda da Praça da República the Church and the Jesuit College was built at the end of the 17th century by order of D. Diogo Gonçalves – whose mausoleum remains in the main chapel – as gratitude for having found in Portimão a good port of refuge, after a strong storm at sea.

Colegio
College of the Jesuits 

Unlike the Jesuit buildings, this building fully assumed the Baroque style. With the earthquake of 1755 the building suffered some damage, highlighting the vaults, which contributed for a refurbishment of the main facade.

The austerity and simplicity of the architecture of the Restoration are present within the Church-Hall.

The Church of the College of the Jesuits was even chosen by the Marquês de Pombal to set up in the region of Portimão a new Algarve Cathedral (Diocese), a project that did not happen in the end.

Chapel of Nossa Senhora do Amparo

This simple chapel, of Arab origin, was christianized and dedicated to Our Lady of Amparo, also known by Our Lady of the Milk, well represented in a screen behind the altar, breastfeeding her baby. Here the pregnant women went to receive their blessing. The chapel was built in the likeness of the ancient Islamic marabouts, having been restored 30 years ago.

Situada na Alameda da Praça da República, em Portimão, a Igreja e o Colégio dos Jesuítas foi construída em finais do séc. XVII por ordem de D. Diogo Gonçalves – cujo mausoléu permanece na capela-mor – como agradecimento por ter encontrado em Portimão um bom porto de abrigo, depois de uma forte tempestade no mar.

Ao contrário das construções Jesuíticas, este edifício assumia plenamente o Barroco. . Com o terramoto de 1755 sofreu alguns danos, destacando as abóbadas, o que contribui para uma refeitura da fachada principal.

Capela da Nossa Senhora do Amparo

Esta capela simples, de origem árabe, foi cristianizada e dedicada a Nossa Senhora do Amparo, também conhecida por Nossa Senhora do Leite, e aqui bem representada numa tela atrás do altar, amamentando o seu bebé. Aqui se dirigiam as grávidas para receberem a sua bênção. A Capela foi construída à semelhança dos antigos morabitos islâmicos, tendo sido restaurada há 30 anos.

Who has been on holidays in the Algarve probably knows that good quality wines are produced here and has probably, tasted some.

What is probably less known is that the major Algarve towns lend their names to the four main wines regions, the so called DOCs “Demarcated Regions”: Lagos, Portimão, Lagoa and Tavira – and that the Algarve wine tradition come from ancient times.

It is uncertain when the mythical Mediterranean drink – the wine – reached the Algarve.

The first news of contact with wine, revealed by archaeological remains, suggest for more than two thousand years ago, what is comprehensive, considering the nature of the soil and the climate of the south of Portugal.

In fact, the importance of the vineyards in this region dates back to the Arab presence in the Algarve, a time when grapes were already grown and wines of good quality were exported.

Recently and for many years, due to several reasons, it seemed however that the Algarve wine would be a tradition to be lost. But, in recent years the trend has been reversed with the appearance of new producers who have given a new breath of fresh air to the Algarve wines.

In 2017, the Algarve wines have won their place among the best in the main international and national competitions, often surpassing the most optimistic expectations, with the region obtaining, for example, in 14 international competitions (such as the International Wine Challenge 2017, Mundus Vini Spring Tasting 2017, Mundus Vini Summer Tasting 2017, AWC Vienna 2017, the Wine Masters Challenge 2017, just to name a few), 73 distinctions or medals (gold, silver or bronze) in white, red and rosé wines, from 17 Algarve producers.

Discover the genuine taste of an Algarve tradition

In search of the best insider tips and secrets to share with the world, we have found a small fish cannery craft in the Algarve that produces, with love and affection, delicious fillets of anchovy. BIKE MY SIDE AND ENJOY THE RIDE | TRAVEL AND LEISURE BLOG PORTUGAL

In search of the best insider tips and secrets to share with the world, we have found a small cannery craft in the Algarve that has behind it a moving family history and produces, with love and affection, delicious fillets of anchovy.

For those who do not know, the anchovy is a small bluish fish, from which you can make fillets, that when processed in an artisan way – based on a whole ancestral tradition and the enormous heritage that the canning industry left to those who worked there in the Algarve – turn into a delicious delicacy, ideal as an entrée or snack, seasoned with garlic and accompanied by a cold beer or a good fresh green wine.

biqueirao 3

The story of the Filetes de Biqueirão Avô Luís is also the story of the canning industry in the Algarve and Carla, a woman of arms with a pleasant smile, who gives herself body and soul to all the projects she embraces and dedicates to them, all affection.

biqueirao 4

Let her story be told in her own words… It’s up to us to present her in a small biographical note…

Carla Isabel de Jesus Serol was born on October 13, in 1976. She is the youngest of six siblings. Daughter of Deolinda Boiças and Luís Serol. She has been married for 18 years to Mario, who is her biggest support in this project. Mother of three boys 13, 9 and 4 years old, she is a native of Lagoa, in the Algarve where she works as an administrative assistant in the Social Action Unit of the Municipality. She has lived in Armação de Pêra for 18 years but her whole life revolves around the city of Lagoa, where she works, where the children study and go to the day care. She participates actively in the social and political life of her city, having assumed in October 2017 the position of President of the Assembly of the Union of Parishes of Lagoa and Carvoeiro. Currently, studying Social Sciences at the Open University, aims to be gradueted in Social Work.

“The anchovy was always something very present in my house. It was an acquired fact, something that appeared year after year at the hands of my parents, as a tradition.

My mother worked in the fish canning industry. In fact, she worked in almost all the fish canning factories that existed at the time in the municipality of Lagoa. And believe me, there were many! Also my paternal grandmother, who I never knew, worked in many of these same factories.

All the knowledge they had, not only about the preparation of the anchovy but also of many other processes of fish preservation, passed it on to my father. And it was in this way that the tradition of the preparation and stowage of anchovy remained in my family.

Driven by my father, who was a man who liked a good snack and anchovy in particular, my mother continued to prepare the fish my father brought. She did it almost in a contradictory way, a reflection of many years of factory work, of many hours of standing and working with employers who were not always pleasant, of years that were not at all removed from a fairy tale. But still, she did it as if she had never stopped doing it. She did it like nobody else!

And so it was for many years, until the sad date when we had to say goodbye to my mother.

In the following years, my father kept the tradition alone. The result was 20 to 30 bottles he distributed warmly to his children and some close friends. My father was an extraordinarily generous man.

With the departure of my mother, we talked many times that he could not leave us without sharing the testimony of the anchovy to someone. We agreed that next summer we would do it together, so that I, besides the theory, would learn all the practice of the process. But life turned us around, and “next summer” did not came to my father.

I promised him still in life that I would do it without him. And so I did it! The next summer I prepared my first batch of anchovy, with only my heart in mind. And the power of love is amazing … as if I was guided, I made the first 30 bottles of the Filetes de Biqueirão Avô Luís. With the success in sight and the search I had for more product, I decided to continue what began as a promise of love.

At this moment, the Filetes de Biqueirão Avô Luís have come to stay. We have a small business on the rise, to which I foresee much success and which already includes a small canning craft. “

The stew of the anchovy (treatment of the fish after the brine that will give rise to the delicious snack) is in fact a totally handcrafted process that involves a lot of time, work, patience and, above all, a lot of dedication.

biqueirao 6

This is the secret of the Filetes de Biqueirão Avô Luís – commitment in the ambition of keeping these traditional flavours alive, and a true example, that good traditional products require soul, dedication, and lots of love.

O sabor genuíno de uma tradição algarvia, Filetes de Biqueirão Avô Luís

Encontrámos uma pequena conserveira artesanal no Algarve que produz com muito amor e carinho, deliciosos filetes de biqueirão. BIKE MY SIDE AND ENJOY THE RIDE | BLOG DE LAZER E VIAGENS POR CÁ

Na procura das melhores dicas e segredos para partilhar com o mundo, encontrámos uma pequena conserveira artesanal no Algarve que tem por detrás uma comovente história familiar e que produz, com muito amor e carinho, deliciosos filetes de biqueirão.

Para quem não sabe, o biqueirão é um peixe azulado de pequeno porte, a partir do qual se podem fazer filetes, que processados de modo artesanal – tendo como base toda uma tradição ancestral e a enorme herança que a indústria conserveira deixou a quem nela trabalhou – se transformam numa deliciosa iguaria, ideal como entrada ou lanche, temperada com alho e acompanhada por uma cerveja gelada ou um bom vinho verde fresco.

biqueirao 3

A história dos Filetes de Biqueirão Avô Luís, é também, a história da indústria conserveira no Algarve e de Carla, uma mulher de armas e de sorriso agradável, que se entrega de corpo e alma a todos os projectos que abraça e a eles dedica, todo o seu carinho.

biqueirao 4

Vamos deixar que a sua história, seja contada pelas suas próprias palavras, cabendo-nos somente, apresentá-la, numa pequena nota biográfica…

Carla Isabel de Jesus Serol nasceu a 13 de outubro de 1976. É a mais nova de seis irmãos. Filha de Deolinda Boiças e Luís Serol. É casada há 18 anos com Mário, que é o seu maior apoio neste projeto e mãe de três rapazes de 13, 9 e 4 anos. É natural de Lagoa, no Algarve onde trabalha como assistente administrativa na Unidade de Ação Social do Município. Vive em Armação de Pêra há 18 anos, mas toda a sua vida gira em volta da cidade de Lagoa, onde trabalha, onde estudam os filhos e frequentam a creche. Participa ativamente na vida social e política do seu concelho, tendo assumido em outubro de 2017, o cargo de Presidente da Assembleia da União de Freguesias de Lagoa e Carvoeiro. Atualmente, a estudar Ciências Sociais na Universidade Aberta, tem como objetivo, licenciar-se em Serviço Social.

“O biqueirão foi sempre algo muito presente na minha casa, desde sempre. Foi um dado adquirido, algo que surgia ano após ano pelas mãos dos meus pais, como uma tradição que se mantinha.

A minha mãe fora na sua juventude conserveira. Trabalhou em quase todas as fábricas de conserva de peixe que existiam na altura no concelho de Lagoa. E acredite-se, eram muitas! Também a minha avó paterna, que nunca conheci, trabalhou como conserveira em muitas destas mesmas fábricas.

Todo o conhecimento que tinham, não só quanto à preparação do biqueirão mas também de muitos outros processos de conserva de peixe, passaram-no ao meu pai. E foi desta forma, que a tradição da preparação e estiva do biqueirão se manteve na minha família.

Impulsionada pelo meu pai, que era um homem que gostava de um bom petisco e de biqueirão particularmente, a minha mãe lá preparava o peixe que o meu pai trazia. Fazia-o de forma quase contrariada, reflexo de muitos anos de fábrica, de muitas horas de pé a arranjar peixe, de feitores que nem sempre eram agradáveis, de anos que não foram de todo retirados de um conto de fadas. Mas ainda assim, fazia-o como se nunca o tivesse deixado de fazer. Fazia-o como ninguém!

E assim foi durante muitos anos, até à triste data em que tivemos que nos despedir derradeiramente da minha mãe.

Nos anos seguintes, o meu pai manteve a tradição, sozinho. O resultado era 20 a 30 frascos que ele distribuía calorosamente pelos filhos e por alguns amigos mais chegados. O meu pai era um homem extraordinariamente generoso.

Com a partida da minha mãe, conversámos muitas vezes de que ele não poderia partir sem deixar o testemunho do biqueirão a alguém. Combinamos que no próximo Verão, o faríamos em conjunto, para que eu, além da teoria, aprendesse toda a prática do processo. Mas a vida trocou-nos a voltas, e o “próximo Verão” não chegou para o meu pai.

Prometi-lhe ainda em vida, que o faria mesmo sem ele. E assim o fiz! No verão seguinte preparei o meu primeiro lote de biqueirão, tendo como mentor apenas o coração. E é incrível o poder do amor… como se tivesse a ser guiada, elaborei os primeiros 30 frascos dos Filetes de Biqueirão Avô Luís. Com o sucesso à vista e a procura que tive por mais produto, decidi continuar aquilo que começou por ser uma promessa de amor.

Neste momento, as Flietes de Biqueirão Avô Luís vieram para ficar. Temos um pequeno negócio em ascensão, ao qual prevejo muito sucesso e que engloba já uma pequena conserveira artesanal.”

A estiva do biqueirão (tratamento do peixe após a salmoura que depois dará origem ao delicioso petisco) é na verdade, um processo totalmente artesanal que envolve muito tempo, trabalho, paciência e acima de tudo, muita dedicação.

biqueirao 6

É este o segredo dos Filetes de Biqueirão Avô Luís – muito empenho, na ambição de querer manter estes sabores tradicionais, tão algarvios, e um verdadeiro exemplo, de que os bons produtos tradicionais requerem alma, dedicação, e, muito amor.

Se desejar degustar esta iguaria, de produção limitada, poderá por enquanto, encontrá-la somente através do Facebook em Filetes de Biqueirão – Avô Luís.
