Portimão took part in a national initiative entitled ‘A Terra Treme’ (The Earth Shakes) which it used to not only prepare the population in the event of an earthquake but also to test the town’s new tsunami warning siren.

The siren was installed near Praia da Rocha’s Santa Catarina fortress and is part of a warning system that will also include three other sirens along the borough’s coastal areas.
