Places to Visit in Lagos

  • Ponta da Piedade: One of the most recognized natural landmarks in Portugal, the mournfully labeled Ponta da Piedade — translating to “Point of Pity” — is a picturesque headland that protrudes out into the sea on the western edge of Lagos Bay. Burnished with gold and burnt in ochre, the dramatic sandstone cliffs rise out of the crystalline waters, some arched and contorted as if melted by the sun. Look underneath and discover a labyrinthine maze of caves and grottoes that can be explored via boat or kayak. However, if you wish to keep your feet on the ground, follow the serpentine footpaths to reach some dizzyingly beautiful viewpoints that provide spectacular panoramas over a bizarre and beautiful seascape.
  • Lagos Old Town: Tucked behind 16th-century walls, Lagos Old Town is streaked with tessellations of traditional white-washed buildings lining the pretty labyrinthine cobblestone streets, picturesque squares, and medieval churches. At its heart lies a medieval Arab-built castle and other heritage buildings that are begging to be explored, as well as several youthful bars, clubs, and lounges that come alive with activity as night falls.
