Sim­ples ou elab­o­radas, as cham­inés al­gar­vias são um sím­bolo da região, her­ança da pre­sença árabe ao longo de sécu­los. Para além da sua uti­liza­ção prática, as cham­inés eram el­e­men­tos dec­o­ra­tivos das casas. A cham­iné do dia a dia era us­ada para preparar as refeições, en­quanto a cham­iné or­na­men­tal, ocu­pava um lu­gar de relevo nas co­z­in­has, lo­cal para acol­her as vis­i­tas. A cham­iné era con­sid­er­ada um sinal de vida e ocu­pação das casas. Sim­ple or elab­o­rate, the Al­gar­vian chim­neys are a sym­bol of this re­gion, her­itage of the Arab pres­ence for cen­turies. In ad­di­tion to their prac­ti­cal use, chim­neys were dec­o­ra­tive el­e­ments of houses. The day-to-day chim­ney was used to pre­pare meals, while an or­na­men­tal chim­ney had a prom­i­nent place in the kitchens, place for the hosts to re­ceive their guests. A chim­ney was a sign of life and ac­tiv­ity in­side of the houses.
