Re: Olhão ‘stripped of charm’

Dear Editor,
Your article on Olhão’s walkway (last week’s edition) reminds me of similar desecration of beautiful calçada and substitution with slippery smooth slabs, and adornment with stainless steel ‘bollards’ at Querenca.
So upset am I still that I cannot go there … blood pressure rises!
