Armação de Pêra was named after the inland region of Pêra. Today the area is a lively high-rise Algarve resort.
It has a wonderful long sandy beach stretching all the way to Praia de Galé in Albufeira region.
Armação de Pêra is a mix of slightly weather worn buildings and new, modern apartment blocks along the sea front, many being 10 to 12 storeys high. The 'old village' is at the eastern end by the fishermen's beach and is more typically Algarvean. It is here, on the beachfront that the remains of a 17th century fort still stand - built to defend the village from pirates and corsairs by a wealthy fishing boat owner.
Going west, you have Nossa Senhora da Rocha (Our Lady of the Rocks), a very small chapel on the cliffs above the beach.
