The Algarve region
LAGOS: 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
PRAIA DA LUZ, BURGAU and SALEMA were all small fishing villages only 25 years ago but are now firmly established as villa and apartment resorts for holidaymakers. Fortunately, development has been largely sensitively controlled and the laid-back spirit of the locals has survived the changes. It must be the beaches, for this stretch of the coast has some of the best family beaches in the Algarve. Clean, golden, sheltered and gently shelving, even in the height of the season you always seem to have room to relax and play. The Costa Vicentina national park borders these resorts and extends north all the way up to Odeceixe on the west coast, so the inland is rugged and sparse but also a haven for indigenous wildlife and flora and fauna.
