The city of Lagos is located in the south of mainland Portugal, in the heart of the Algarve region. Tucked away in a bay, Lagos is an ideal holiday destination. Relatively untouched by mass tourism, this fortified city has a rich historical heritage with a magnificently preserved natural environment. The cliffs at Ponta da Piedade offer a picture postcard setting with exceptional views over the bay. Lagos also has numerous white sand beaches that are a haven for water sports enthusiasts.
