Portimão crematorium

Portimão’s new cemetery, to be built next year, will house a crematorium.

The cemetery, which will be opposite the Malheiro village, near Barlavento Hospital, is seen as a priority for the council as the one in the centre of the city is no longer able to meet demand.

Faro’s new cemetery, the building of which is already underway, also includes plans for a crematorium.

The nearest crematorium to the Algarve is an hour-and-a-half away in Beja, in the Alentejo.
