    The Ponta da Bandeira Fort is located between the sea and the city center. It is relatively small but offers nice views over the sea.  more »

    Little Fort, historic, is flanked by orla reurbanizada, annex a marina. Built in stone, has a very peculiar architecture, and is very well maintained.

  • One of the prettiest places seen so far. Free parking. Carry a bottle of water, since the walk is long. Needs staircase climb as well. But, what a view !
  • Didn't make any sense paying for just a view which u can also get from the beach. But it's cheap though. But I could buy a beer rather. 😁
  • Very interesting fort on the harbour at Lagos. Cheap entry fee and enough to see to make it worth the fee. Good views and some interesting exhibitions.
  • It is a beautiful Fortress from the outside but it doesn't justify paying to get in as the views you get are very similar to the ones next to Saint Gonzalo right next to this construction.
  • It was a fun place to go and cheap admission fees

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.
