The 1990s saw a significant influx of immigrants from Eastern Europe, most commonly from Moldavia, Russia, Romania and Bulgaria, while the 2000s were the years of the immigrants from China and Brazil.
The recent years, however, saw a significant rise in the numbers of immigrants from the western European countries, such as France, Britain, and Germany, and most of these expats choose to settle in the Algarve region.
The majority of the Portuguese population, ninety-four percent, is Portuguese, with the other six percent consisting mostly of the Brazilians, the blacks, the mixed race, and the other Europeans.
