Lagos Car Hire - Lagos Overview:

LAGOS

With its relaxed atmosphere and quiet charm, make it one of the most appealing locations in the Algarve to visitors from abroad.

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 beach, but there are smaller sandy coves to be explored both closer and farther away from the town centre.
An important tourist town there are still many architectural signs of its ancient past, even a building dating originally back to around 1445 and is recorded as being Europe’s first building used as a slave-market. The walls of the town are in most parts remaining after areas of restoration. There are several interesting statues erected to the famous past figures that are associated with the history of this town. The town’s more recently constructed Marina presents a lovely picture and this harbour is the first sight a visitor has of Lagos.

LAGOS HISTORICAL CENTRE

Although the earthquake of 1755 caused great damage the streets and squares of Lagos have retained much of the charm of a town hundreds of years old.

On the site of the old medieval town - a quadrilateral defined by the town walls and two streets São Gonçalo and 5 de Outubro street - the houses preserve much of its former character in the stonework around their windows and doors, in their wrought iron balconies, in the cool, shady areas created by the narrow streets, and in the patios where flowers, fig trees and vines are to be found growing.

From the main avenue “Avenida dos Descobrimentos”, it is possible to make out the profile of the town; to look out seawards to the far horizon, to watch be bustle of fishing boats and the shimmering masts of yachts mirrored in the still waters of the marina.
