A bit of history:
“Having more than five centuries of Arabic influence left undeniable marks in the region, starting by its name: Al-Gharb, the Occident. This strong presence, from centuries VIII to XIII, still very alive on its agriculture, village names, architecture, terraces and chimneys and even in the predominant white lime that still covers many houses in the Algarve.” In www.visitalgarve.pt
