Lagos is a town and municipality in the West Algarve Region, with a rich history and culture, being a centre point in the Portuguese Age of Discovery. The historic town centre is known for its old city walls and cobblestone streets.
In 2012, Tripadvisor classified Lagos as the number 1 worldwide travel destination ‘on the rise’ for good reason. Lagos is perfectly located on the south coast with its marina, beautiful beaches, sandy coves, gorgeous cliffs, quality golf courses and water sport opportunities.
Lagos perfectly blends traditional Portuguese culture with modern entrepreneurship and tourism. The fishing tradition makes for the best fresh fish in traditional Portuguese restaurants, and the younger generations are filling it up with small businesses, urban restaurants, and modern bars.
