The Algarve region
The Algarve has an excellent and enviable climate – reputed to be one of the best and healthiest in Europe – so it is no surprise that this is one of Europe’s best-loved destinations.The beautiful scenery of the Western Algarve features rugged landscapes and, to the west of Lagos, the sandstone coastline gives way to limestone and slate cliffs. Here the sea becomes choppier, the waters cooler and the wind fresher. This region is popular with the young and a paradise for surfers.
The Portuguese Government is determined to retain the Western Algarve’s natural beauty, and preserve its wildlife. It has therefore protected large areas of land by creating nature reserves, resisting the pressure from property developers to release more building land. The tiny, unspoiled inland villages give visitors a glimpse of how the Algarve used to be before the tourist invasion in the mid 20th century. They are scattered through lovely countryside with its flower-filled woodlands, streams and springs. To the north, the gentle Monchique mountains (the highest point is 900m), protect most of the Algarve from the northerly winds and provide stunning views of the coastal plains.
A town of some 30,000 inhabitants (having grown from around 15,000 in 1995), Lagos was an important Roman settlement called 'Lacobriga' and a variety of ancient Roman ruins remain including the old slave market. The town is located on the edge of a superb bay and has five different beaches all within walking distance of the town centre, which is enclosed within 5th century walls. A modern and well equipped marina dominates the sea front and the town is now firmly positioned as a centre for tourists from all over the world.
For historians, there are some lovely churches to be explored, such as 'São Sebastião' (featuring 17th-18th century tiling) and the São João Hermitage (8th-9th century) as well as a regional museum and the old Governors' Palace. Strolling around day or evening you will find a plethora of restaurants, bars, a cinema and other diversions to choose from, and in the early hours of the morning, dancing and music to suit all tastes - truly the spirit of the Romans lives on.
