  • Enjoyed the fish served at the local restaurant.
  • Este renovado núcleo museológico Mercado dos Escravos dá-nos uma imagem da importância da cidade de Lagos enquanto porta de entrada de escravos e o seu papel de destaque nos descobrimentos portugueses. A adoção de novas tecnologias e interatividade permite uma excelente viagem ao passado e uma reflexão em relação a outras formas de escravatura que, infelizmente, ainda subsistem. A não perder!
