The word Algarve comes from Al Gharb?
Al Gharb was the region southwest of the Iberian Peninsula under Muslim rule since 711, when the Arab invasions in the Peninsula.
Al Garbe derives from an Arabic expression, Gharb, which means West. Accordingly, the Al Garbe toponym refers to the region to the west of Al Andalus, or simply to the territory to the west.
