Lagos is one of the leading tourist destinations in the Algarve. Chosen every year by thousands of tourists for its proximity to beautiful beaches such as Praia Dona Ana and Meia Praia, remains part of their historical heritage.

The area is served by a good network of resorts that each year fill in summer. The Transport Lagos train station is next to the River, fifteen minutes walk from the city center. Nearby there is a bus stop, on the Avenue of Discovery, next to the bridge. The tourist information desk is located in Sitio de São João, in the eastern part of the city.

The town can be covered on foot without problems, though some are seen through the tourist train that takes on the Avenue of the Discoveries and crosses the Praia de Dona Ana and Porto de Mos, to the Ponta da Piedade. What to see in Lagos was the residence of Prince Henry the Navigator in his adventures from the time of discovery.

The city was the basis of trade with the former Portuguese colonies in Africa. This time dates the old slave market in Republic Square. In the Plaza Gil Eanes there is a monument to King Sebastian, who left Lagos to fight and perish in battle Alcazarquivir and now part of the collective imagination of Portugal. Lagos is a city that was once an important naval center and its surroundings were born a lot of religious temples, monuments and palaces. Walk around this area is an activity that we recommend and that certainly like to go to. The ruins of the walls, the military fort and the St. Anthony's Church are sites that can not miss.

Five minutes later is the Dona Ana beach, a beach with a landscape worthy of a postcard. Following the coast to succeed beach Camilo and essential tip of piety, which in turn is the end of the tourist train route. To the west is the beach of Porto de Mos at least 45 minutes from Lagos.
