  • Enjoyed the fish served at the local restaurant.
  • An absolute decepcion.el Museum is made up of vitrimas containing crappy photocopies of libros.solo explained in Portuguese and English. The question would be indifferent if not they charged 3e to enter. It seems nothing recommendable and a hoax

  • This renovated Museum of the slave Market gives us an image of the importance of the city of Lagos while slave input port and your role in the Portuguese discoveries. The adoption of new technologies and interactivity allows an excellent trip to the past and a reflection about the other forms of slavery which, unfortunately, still exist. Not to be missed!

Where to stay in Lagos

The historical city core of Lagos is packed full of colorful buildings and bustling streets, some of which date as far back as the medieval period. Though the hotels in the central district are on the expensive side, you can put yourself right in the middle of the city's best restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions by reserving a room there. The center and outlying residential neighborhoods also boast plenty of more affordable options, including smaller hotels, guesthouses, and family-run inns that offer fewer amenities but put you in good position to get out and about on foot. As Lagos is a relatively small town, you'll be within walking distance of both of its premier stretches of beach from nearly any lodging. Those with a car or transportation can get even further afield to experience other nearby coastal areas.
