Lagos has a fascinating history, being the launching point of many of the famous early explorers. As such, the Ponta da Pedade features a classic lighthouse from which you can venture out on boat trips and see the natural caves along the cliffside. The Forte Ponta de Bandeira is a fortress that dates back to the 1600’s to defend the coastline from pirates and potential invaders. The slave market in the town centre is an interesting reminder of the role that Portugal had in the trading of people during its colonial peak.
