According to some theories, the name of the town has its origins in the Arabic word Al-Gûzz or Al-Gozz which derives from the name of the Turkic Oghuz people (modern-day Turkmens), whose members settled in the area in the 12th century. In Portuguese, the word algoz means executioner or torturer because formal executioners and torturers recruited by the de jure Islamic authorities of the region under Muslim rule, after the Muslim invasion of Iberia, were Oghuz. Other sources cite an unnamed Castilian king arrived at the area to fight the Moors as the origin of the name. According to this source, this king used the expression "algo és" (Portuguese) or "algo es" (Spanish) which means "is something" referring to the small village when told about the little importance of the locality. The Kingdom of Portugal permanently reconquered all of the Algarve in the 13th century and after that, the Kingdom of the Algarve became a nominal kingdom within the Kingdom of Portugal. The patron saint of Algoz is Our Lady of Mercy. To the south of the town on a hill is the Chapel of Nossa Senhora do Pilar, from here there are fine views across the surroundings. On the eastern slopes of this hill there is a meadow called Amoreira. There have been many archaeological findings there revealing much about Algoz past. There are also two other chapels in the area. The one in the west is dedicated to Saint Sebastian and one in the east dedicated to Saint Joseph. Formerly a village, Algoz was upgraded to town status on July 12, 2001. In 2013, the civil parish of Algoz merged into the new civil parish of Algoz e Tunes and the town of Algoz became the seat of the new civil parish.
Rua do Ribeiro street in Algoz. Part of the Algoz river runs underground for 0.32 kilometers (0.2 mi) below the street.

The town of Algoz, in Silves municipality, is in an area of the Algarve called the Barrocal or gulley region. It is 14 kilometers (8.7 mi) southeast of the city of Silves and it is 258 kilometers (160 mi) south southeast of Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal. The settlement stretches along an open valley, bounded on the south by a mountain and on the west by further highlands. The parish is bordered to the north by São Bartolomeu de Messines, to the east is Tunes and Pêra on the southwest. Algoz is very close to the neighboring civil parish of Guia, in the municipality of Albufeira, whose seat (the town of Guia proper) is located 4.6 kilometers to the south of the town of Algoz by road. A stream also called the Algoz runs to the north of the town of Algoz from an easterly direction, and from the northwest, a tributary called Barranco Longo joins the stream. Part of the Algoz river runs underground for 0.32 kilometers (0.2 mi) below the Rua do Ribeiro street in Algoz. Further on the stream flows under the Alcantarilha bridge and the name of the stream changes to the Enxurrada or the Alcantarilha stream. This watercourse finally flows into the Atlantic Ocean between Pêra and Armação de Pêra. The town of Algoz proper is about 40 meters high above sea level and about 9 kilometers from the coast.
The Municipal Market located on Rua da Moinheta street.
The economy of Algoz relies on agribusiness from fruticulture-related, including oranges, to olive and winery-related, logistics including package delivery, waste management, and wholesalers. Unlike many of the most renowned places in the region, Algoz isn't on the seaside of the Algarve, but even so, tourism is also important since the town is well-connected to the rest of the Algarve which is one of the most reputed travel destinations in Europe.
