First held in 1967 and one of the founding events in the inaugural 1973 WRC.
Initially a mixed surface rally, it switched to a pure gravel format but lost its place in the calendar after bad weather ruined the 2001 event. Organisers moved from the north to the Algarve holiday region in the south and it regained its place in 2007. Named ‘Best Rally in the World’ on five occasions.
