Lagos City Guide - Information
Lagos is possibly the perfect tourist destination in Portugal as the favorite vacation elements can be found here - historical sites, charming pathways, sunny beaches, hospitable locals, reliable car rent and a happening nightlife. Lagos attracts a variety of travelers - road trippers, food trippers, historians, surfers, backpackers and clubbers.
The history of Lagos can be traced back to 2,000 years ago, with the Atlantic Ocean playing a most significant role. Since the ancient times, fishing has been the most common means of living in the small town of Lagos. The coastline gives the locals fish and draws the tourists; fishing and tourism are two of the largest sources of Lagos’ income.
Places to See
Let your Lagos car rental take you to the historical sites of the little town. The Castelo dos Governadores is an interesting establishment as it was founded by the Arabs, which explains the architecture. It was the seat of 14th century military government of Algarve. You should also make a stop at the Fortaleza de Ponta de Bandeira, a fortress that protected the town from marauders and pirates. The 17th century citadel is now a museum of Portuguese artifact.
Of course, you have to experience the beaches of Lagos. Get off your Lagos car rental, put on your favorite swimwear and slather on sun block because the waves beckon. Hire a small fishing boat and admire the grottos that line the coast of Lagos. The grottos are a favorite of the tourists because if you go out at the right time, you see different images as unique as the "Titanic", "Elephant" and "Easter Island". If you want to get away from it all, go to the secluded beach of Praia do Camilo. It is one of the best spots to watch the sun set on the crystal waters and the magnificent cliff formations.
Going around Lagos
To see the whole of Lagos, tourists often join tour groups, where they are shuttled from one place to another. However, most afford only a few moments on the site to have some photos taken. This is unfortunate because the beauty of Lagos deserves more than just a few snapshots. Give yourself the chance to enjoy Lagos by renting a car hire in Lagos. You may choose to drive your Lagos car rent or get your partner or companion to drive while you enjoy the views
From the Airport
Driving from the Faro Airport to Lagos via car hire takes approximately an hour by taking the A22 route. Your car hire may be picked up at the airport and you may make a stopover in the charming town of Faro before heading all the way to Lagos. Buses and shuttles may be availed if you don’t mind the a little delay in your excursion.
Once you’ve had an abundance of the Lagos sun, drive your Lagos car hire to Vila do Bispo to feast on only the freshest seafood. Vila do Bispo may be a small town, but the restaurants are aplenty and the food is fresh, fresh and fresh. Balance all the delicious seafood by taking your car rental to Monchique for a sip of authentic Monchique schnapps.
