The famous winding streets are full of a variety of shops which offer everything from traditional pottery and crafts to fashion as well as a wealth of restaurants serving a mixture of cuisine including the traditional Portuguese dishes.

PRAIA DA LUZ

15 minute drive

The village of Praia da Luz is a few kilometres from Lagos and a short drive from the Casa Monte Cristo Collection. It is well known for its friendly, relaxed holiday atmosphere with the charm of a traditional Portuguese village. Its name literally means ‘The Beach of Light’, taken from its past when beacons were lit on the beaches to warn fishermen of the approaching danger from the Moors.
The beaches here offer safe, wide golden sands and plenty of sports facilities ranging from scuba diving, micro-lite and horse riding.

The Moorish past of this region is inescapable including a coastal fort which is now a restaurant. Also visit the ‘Black Rock’ (Rocha Negra), and see the lava which was produced some 190 million years ago - a noticeable addition to the coastline against the golden cliffs that surround the coastline. Also don't miss the Roman ruins.
