Algoz the name of the village has its origins in the Arabic word “Al-Gûzz” which derives from the name of a war-like Asian tribe from the Middle East, some of whom settled in the area in the 12th century. The patron saint of the village is Our Lady of mercy.

To the south of the village on a hill is the Chapel of Nossa Senhora do Pilar, from here there are fine views across the area. On the eastern slopes of this hill there is meadow called Amoreira.
