PC #287: Algarve, Portugal map from the Netherlands

Laura (LaMa1) bought this beautiful map card from Portugal during a wonderful holiday trip! Algarve came from the Arabic word Al-Gharb, meaning “The West”. The region can be found at the southernmost part of mainland Portugal. According to Wikipedia, it is the most popular tourist destination in the country. People love to spend their holidays in the region because of the beautiful beaches, the climate, the golf courses, and the cuisine. Plus it’s relatively cheaper than the other tourist destinations in Europe.

The card was sent from the Netherlands and was matched with pretty stamps which, according to Laura, are all sold for a cause. 😉
