The Guarda Fiscal outpost in Cinturão (Castro Marim)

Algarve: old police outposts to be turned into hotels and resorts

The government has unveiled a plan to turn five former outposts of Portugal’s Guarda Fiscal – an old military police force which was dissolved in 1993 – in the Algarve into hotels, resorts or any other kind of tourism establishment.

The outposts are located in Castro Marim (Cinturão, Corte Velha and Junqueira) as well as Vilamoura and Cabanas de Tavira.

Anyone interested in developing a project to turn these rundown outposts into full-fledged tourism establishments can present a bid until October 19.

Planned for tomorrow (Tuesday, September 22 at 3pm) is a Q&A event which aims to help those interested in learning more about the project and how they can present their bid. It will take place at the auditorium of the regional tourism board’s headquarters in Faro.

The initiative is being carried out as part of the government’s Fundo Revive Natureza, which aims to breathe new life into rundown historic buildings – most of which are considered to have great potential for tourism-related activities.

More information about the project, as well as the five outposts located in the Algarve, can be found online:
