"Vilamoura is the largest luxury tourist complex in Europe, covering some 20 km² of land. It is located in the municipality of Loulé, in the Algarve, Portugal. Its boundaries lie within the parish of Quarteira. Vilamoura is a purpose-built resort and marina which was started from scratch by Cupertino de Miranda, a wealthy banker from Porto, in 1974[1] and is still expanding outwards from the marine center. The resort is located 23 km west along the coast from Faro and is at 266 kilometers south of Lisbon. The nearest airport is at Faro." In: Wikipedia
