Jewel of the Algarve

The allure of the beaches and the town's historical center draw visitors to Lagos, a coastal destination in the Barlavento region of the Algarve. The town's name literally means "lakes," and it is known historically as the launching point of several naval expeditions during Portugal's Age of Discoveries. Lagos has its fair share of cobbled streets, squares, and churches, but today this crowded vacation town is most popular for its vibrant nightlife and its selection of bars, restaurants, cafes, and shops. When using our Portugal itinerary builder tool, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
