SAGRES AND THE SEA DISCOVERIES
(4 HOURS TOUR)
In Summer time the Algarve has three times more population than in winter.
Leave behind the bustling city of Portimão and its famous golden beaches heading westward to Lagos, once an important fishing harbor now an attractive seaside resort with a modern marina for yachts. Visit includes the old town, its white houses, the former Slave Market and St. António Church with an outstanding interior where baroque virtuosity reigns: painted tiles & gilded wood decoration.
Proceed now to Sagres, an impressive and arid world's end, called by the Romans Sacred Promontory, chosen by Prince Henry the Navigator as a base from where sailed the caravels to the great Sea Discoveries. In our tour we shall visit the fortress and stop by the marine caves on the edge of the cliff. Return to the pier of Portimão.
