Lagos is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Algarve, where you can lay your towel in soft sands or hit the crystal-clear waters to enjoy snorkeling and other watersports. The town draws tourists with its vibrant nightlife scene, outstanding restaurants and burgeoning vineyards. Although hedonistic pleasures are Lagos’ main attraction, the town also has a long and rich history, visible in its cobbled streets and pretty plazas.
An ancient port city for thousands of years, Lagos was the capital of Algarve from 1576. An earthquake devastated the town in 1755, after which the capital was moved and Lagos entered a period of economic decline. Although the town is still a fishing port and market center, it was tourism that fueled its revival in the 1960s.
