Lagos Lagos

Lagos was an important harbour at the time of the Great Discoveries and it was from here that most of the African expeditions put to sea. Surrounding the old centre of this former capital of the Algarve (1576 tot 1756) still stands an almost complete city wall. Apart from being a seaside resort and a fishing port, Lagos is also an important yachting centre organising international regattas.
