A pretty village that hangs over a river, Aljezur is part Moorish and has a cute group of cottages perched below a 10th century hilltop castle, well the ruins of it anyway. The eastern side of the city is up a steep hill and is called "Igreja Nova". The stunning beach is dotted with black rocks and is a surfers' paradise, whilst the surrounding countryside is cloaked in foliage and is part of a natural park. A quaint market town of whitewashed houses and cobblestone streets, it is only 30 km from Lagos in southwest Portugal. Coworking venues are opening their doors in this land that has been created for the sun worshippers and the surfing addicts who wish to play and work by the beach.
Portugal is rising unshackled from almost half a century of authoritarian rule and is trying to reinvent itself as Europe's leading tech hub. Known for its cheap rents, incredible cultural scene and awesome quality of life, Portugal is promoting the fact that it also has an economy based on knowledge and an entrepreneurial community that is growing by the day.
With its change in government, wealth of tech talent and the fact that nearly everyone speaks English, Portugal is seeing the return of many of its youth that had fled to what they perceived to be better startup shores. Aljezur, like many other small towns in Portugal is where you can have the perfect life/work balance without breaking your bank account. With the advent of coworking spaces, it is not only the innovative locals hanging out in the establishments, but the wandering globe-trotters who tend to linger for far longer than what they planned to. And, when work starts to create brain implosions there is always the achingly beautiful Arrifana beach to run to.
