  • There is not a lot remaining of this fortress but what is available to see gives a good indication of an impressive structure which was built in the 14th C. There are information signs detailing this ...  more »
  • Medieval castle that still looks impressive if you see it. But not much more than the walls remain and the main entry gate.  more »
  • The walls are well preserved and between them have the arco de São Gonçalo and beside the statue of Gil Eanes. Is near the Fort of Ponta da Bandeira, is across the street. It's worth taking some pictures.

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.
