About Lagos city
Thought by many to be the best town in the Algarve, Lagos is away from the main tourist hussle and bustle, and yet there is always something going on. Going west, Praia da Luz is a favourite beach resort along this strech of coast.

LAGOS is the most historically interesting coastal town in the Algarve. Its fame derives from its association with Portugal's 14th-and 15th-century Age of Discovery. It was here that Henry the Navigator had his vessels built and victualled for the voyages of exploration down the coast of West Africa which utimately led to the sea route past the Cape of Good Hope to India.

One of the most formidable milestones in the quest for a sea passage to the Orient was Cape Bojador, a headland on the bulge of Africa which struck terror in the hearts of medieval seafarers. It was an awesome promontory because of the myths and legend surrounding it, and because of the very real and treacherous winds and currents which made it difficult for sailing ships of the day to both round it and return. The first European captain to accomplish this was Gil Eanes, Lagos' most famous son. He did so in 1495 at the behest of Henry the Navigator after many others had failed.

Both Henry and Gil Eanes are commemorated with statues. Henry presides over the Praça da República. Gil Eanes is in front of the town walls a little farther along to the west. The town's third statue is of the boy-king, Sebastião, who precipitated the demise of the Aviz dynasty in the 16th century by sailing from Lagos to a disasterous defeat in Morocco. Although the subject of many a rude remark, Sebastian's statue in Largo Gil Eanes is by the highly-respected Portuguese sculptor, João Cutileiro.

Just before they set sail, Sebastian, then aged 21, is said to have given a final pep-talk to his troops from a small Manueline-style window, which you can see, fairly high up, in a corner of the town walls just to the left of Henry's statue.

Like the window, the first market in Europe to auction slaves brought back from Africa by Henry's explorers also looks rather forlorn and unexciting nowadays. You will find the slave market (mercado dos escravos), now a little art gallery, in the far corner of Praça da República.

The walls came tumbling down along with all the other buildings in Lagos with the great earthquake of 1755. Among those which were rebuilt and have since undergone renovation are the Church of Santa Maria with 16th-century traces, the 17th-century regimental storehouse next to it, and the mind-blowing "golden" Church of Santo António which forms part of Lagos' rather eccentric museum.

The town's hey-day was undoubtedly from 1420 to 1460 when Henry the Navigator stalked its waterfront and prayed in its churches. It remained a busy place until Sebastian's debacle in Morocco. From then on it went into decline and was reduced to little more than a backwater fishing harbour. Because of its bayside location and its proximity to lovely bathing beaches, it was a natural attraction for tourists once the tourist boom got underway. The latest major addition is the big yacht marina at the most sheltered end of the harbour.

Lagos, with its relaxed atmosphere and quiet charm, make it one of the most appealing locations in the Algarve to visitors from abroad. The best places to sit and watch people go by are at the open-air cafés in Praça da República, next to the tourist information office. The best selection of restaurants is concentrated in the pedestrians-only Rua 25 de Abril.

There is a choice of camp-sites and of a number of beaches of various sizes on the edge and outskirts of town. Dona Ana is the most popular family beach, but there are smaller sandy coves to be explored both closer and farther away from the town centre. The headland of Ponta da Piedada with its lighthouse is best viewed from the sea on a short boat trip. The clifftop is a good place to take a stroll with your camera and marvel at cliff erosion.
