    A good small museum which shows the amazing voyages of adventurers from Portugal over 1,000 years. Lots and lots of reading with good wax models depicting the various explorers. Well worth a visit at ...  more »

    The Museum is small enough and the admission price is rather high (€5) in the light of what there is to see. And it's true, the comments are in Portuguese or English. That being said, this is a beautiful dive in history to see all these discoverers and Portuguese adventurers: it is rather well done.

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.
