The Algarve region
Lagos is a city and a municipality at the mouth of the river Bensafrim and along the Atlantic Ocean,in the region of Algarve, in Algarve`s Barlavento (windward), Southern Portugal.
The municipality has a total population of 27,041 inhabitants. The city itself has a population of approximately 18,000. It is a historic (Portuguese Discoveries) and tourist city (beaches).The majority of the population lives along the coastal line and works in tourism and services. The inland region in sparsely inhabited, with the majority of the people working in agriculture and forestry.
Lagos is located approximately 35 kilometres east of Sagres Point, the south westernmost point of Europe. To the north of Lagos is the road to Silves, the first capital of Algarve, which has a Moorish castle, Monchique (spa town/mountain), Milfontes, a coastal town and port/harbour of the city of Sines, that winds through the scenic protected landscape of the Southwest Natural Park (Costa Sudoeste Alentejana e Vicentina.
Moorish and Renaissance influences abound in South Portugal's Lagos, from its fortress to its plethora of magnificent churches, such as the Medieval São João Hermitage, the 16th-century Santa Maria of Misericrida, the Baroque Santo Ant-nio and the 17th-century São Sebastião. While Lagos' history is rich, it is the area's fine beaches and beach bars, such as Bahia Beach Bar and Retiro do Marujo, which attract many of today's visitors. Frequent buses serve Lagos, making it the easiest way to get around.
There are numerous restaurants, offering a wide variety of menus from the humble, but generous Portuguese, to the exotic Far East. There are many bars and discotheques to keep one entertained in the evening. The Cultural Centre has regular exhibitions, and holds Concerts and theatrical events in the auditorium. Another open-air auditorium, set within the west walls, also holds entertainments in the summer. There is a cinema that shows films, with their original soundtracks and Portuguese sub-titles.
Several of the bars hold Folk evenings. Folk Dancing or Fado singing are attractions which can also be appreciated at some of the restaurants. Details of these events are usually published in both the local English papers.
For those whose interests are afloat there are boat trips, deep-sea fishing trips and tours of the grottoes that lie beneath the Ponte de Piedade. For the even more active, windsurfers can be hired at many of the larger beaches. New for Summer 1999, is the opportunity to go para sailing. There are opportunities for Divers to explore the seabed, but you must bring your certificates to enable you to participate.
The West Coast is ideal for surfing in the Atlantic Rollers off deserted beaches. There is a microlight centre at the Municipal aerodrome.
For those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land there are two golf courses in the area, two bowling greens, tennis courts and squash courts. There are arranged Nature walks, led by an Algarvian society, and other nature and bird-watching tours. Don’t forget the Horse Riding!
If you want to do nothing at all, but just laze in the sun, there are beaches of all shapes and sizes, from the long sandy stretch of Meia Praia to the small cliff-bound hideaways of the Ponte de Piedade.
