Lagos & Sagres

Come with us on this tour and take the opportunity to discover two of southern Portugal’s most famous cities, Lagos and Sagres. Lagos was the residence of King Henry the Navigator at the time of his epoch-making discoveries. This city was the centre for trade with the Portuguese colonies in Africa and we will visit the poignant former slave market which dates from this time. Then we will drive along the stunning coast, past the impressive Praia do Camilo and unforgettable Ponta da Piedade before stopping at the Church of San Antonio, declared National Monument of Portugal for a guided tour. The next stop is bracing Sagres, at the very edge of continental Europe, Portugal’s very own Lands’ End. You will learn how the great navigators who opened up new routes around the world in the sixteenth century learnt their trade here in the famous Navigational School founded in the great fortress which we will take the opportunity to visit. It was from here that the ships sailed out into the unknown on voyages of discovery. Distinguished mariners and great explorers like King Henry the Navigator, Vasco da Gama and Ferdinand Magellan studied here. Our final stop, Cabo de San Vicente is a magical lonely place, once considered the edge of the world where you can look out on the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean from its majestic cliffs. The tour ends with a return to the starting point. Come with us on this tour and take the opportunity to discover two of Southern Portugal’s most famouscities, Lagos and Sagres.
