The Lost Fishing Huts of Quarteira


On my first trip to The Algarve in 2006, the dusty strip of land behind Quarteira's harbour housed a shanty town of fishing huts, buzzing with activity.  In 2009, only a few remained.  By 2013, this once thriving community was no more than a barren wasteland, home to dozens of oversized tourist RVs.  
Another part of The Algarve's heritage destroyed in the name of progress.
