Lagos - the jewel in the crown
 
Many believe Lagos to be the jewel in the Algarve crown.  This is not surprising as you wander around this cosmopolitan place full of rich and beautiful churches, meandering streets, vibrant with music, colour, bars, cafes and restaurants and great places to shop.
 
Easily accessible on the Via do Infante motorway (A22), Lagos is overflowing with things to do and sights to see.  It is a modern city which has retained its rich heritage and goes back to pre-history.  In the 15th century it was the nerve centre of geographical discovery – trailblazers for the west coast of Africa bringing back ivory, gold, spices and the first slaves and leading the way to the Far East via the Cape of Good Hope.

Historic sights and history in Lagos
 
Visit the castle with its city walls now restored but of ancient origin, or wander along the lovely, flat, palm-fringed promenade to the beautiful marina full of tall white sails.  Here you can lounge in outside cafes, restaurants and bars or book onto coastal tours, dolphin safaris, deep sea fishing and so much more.  You can spend time to relax on the wide, flat, sandy beach and enjoy the gentle climate and the welcoming sea. Or, if you’re feeling a little more energetic, there are three golf courses in the vicinity of Lagos – Palmores, Boa Vista and Parque da Floresta. It also lies on a river estuary and is therefore excellent for birdwatching.
 
Lagos is a beautiful, historic, vibrant city retaining a fantastic mixture of local traditions and modern living and a great holiday destination.
