  • 1 Ponta da Piedade Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    N125 P - 8600 Lagos

    The site of Ponta da Piedade gives this point a special charm. The reddish rock of the cliffs, where sea grottoes nestle at the foot, contrasts spectacularly with the green colour of the clear water. You can visit the grottoes by boat. Behind the lig..

  • 2 Church of Santo Antonio Interesting

    Religious buildings

    R. General Alberto Silveira P - 8600 Lagos

    Museums and art

    R. General Alberto Silveira P - 8600 Lagos

    This museum alongside the church of Santo Antonio, has an interesting archaeological collection (coins, fragments of mosaics) and an ethnographic section devoted to the Algarve (notice the cork frames).

  • 7 Forte da Ponta da Bandeira

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Cais da Solaria P - 8600 Lagos

    Built in the 17C the fort stretches into the sea and protects a small port from which the boat-trippers leave for Ponta da Piedade. You must cross the drawbridge to reach the interior of the courtyard. Exhibitions are mounted about the Great Discover..
