"My favorite town in Algarve." Top 5 Page for this destination Lagos by cachaseiro

Lagos Travel Guide: 243 reviews and 639 photos

Lagos is a town that has most of the things i am looking for when i want a nice holiday.
It´s by the sea, it´s pretty, it has a lot of historical sites and there is an excellent bar scene.

It´s Located in the western part of Algarve and has fewer tourists than the towns further east and a large number of the tourists are backpackers that gives the place a youngish feel.

Lagos is also a very historical town, where Henri the navigator send out his ships to explore the coast of Africa and there are several monuments in Lagos reminding you of that era in portugese history.

    After seeing your page I'd like to see this place - thanks for the historical tips, really interesting. But yes - poor Dom Sebastiao has a rather unattractive statue!

    Claus, fantastic page about Lagos. I only made it to Faro at the Algarve, but would love to explore more in this region of Portugal. I didn't know that the water is that cold in Lagos.

    never heard the name of the town before but it looks very interesting with architecture, walls and castle. The water is quite ... fresh in the sea :-))
