Rocks & History

Lagos is one of the most visited cities in the Algarve and Portugal, due to its variety of tourist-friendly beaches, rock formations (Ponta da Piedade), bars, restaurants and hotels, renowned for its vibrant summer nightlife and parties. Yet, Lagos is also a historic centre of the Portuguese Age of Discovery, frequent home of Henry the Navigator, historical shipyard and, at one time, centre of the European slave trade. In 2012, Lagos was classified as the number 1 travel destination, on a list of "15 destinations on the rise". On our tour, we'll be walking while breathing all this. Once in Carvoeiro the time is to be astonished: we'll be entering in one of the caves that is a perfect window opened to the sea! See for yourselves.


Departuring from your Hotel in Albufeira or Portimão areas (not duable in 4 hours, otherwise)we'll be driving to the west in order to visit the charming town of Lagos. Possibility of enjoying free time or visit the golden chapel of St Anthony and the ancient slave market ( entrance fee not included)
Either on the way there or on the returning journey, i'll be sharing with you a fantastic experience by taking you to the interior of a cave that is a perfect opened window to the sea.
