Parque de Floresta Algarve Portugal Golf Holiday Information

Parque de Floresta Holidays and Parque de Floresta resort information

Language

When written the Portuguese language has a visual relationship to both Spanish and Italian. When spoken it takes on another character. Although today the language has been influenced by modern means of communication, the educated form can be likened to "Dickensian English" in its style. It is courteous in content and suitable flowery in description

Spoken Spanish can be understood by the Portuguese at Parque de Floresta but is best avoided. Anybody with knowledge of some Portuguese history will be able to understand the reason. The inhabitants have a wonderful ability to learn foreign languages and you will find that the English language is normally readily understood especially at Parque de Floresta

Museums

Although the majority of the museums and art galleries are State owned there are a number of private Foundations and individually owned exhibition places. This is often the case with contemporary art where they tend to reflect the taste of the owner. State Museums charge a small entrance fee that is usually waived on Sundays and Public Holidays. They are open from Tuesday through to Sunday and pensioners receive a 40% discount on the entrance fee. Opening times are normally from 10.00 hours to 17.00 hours, but some are closed during lunchtime. Check with Parque de Floresta reception

A green cross on white background denotes a chemist. A red cross on a white background denotes a Red Cross station. In most towns there are Emergency Treatment Centres (SAP) that will provide medical assistance 24 hours a day

Security in cities and towns is handled by the Polícia de Segurança Pública (PSP), rural areas by the Guarda Nacional Republicana (GNR), and the traffic by Brigada de Trânsito. On motorways and several major roads there are SOS phone boxes for help in accidents or breakdowns
