Lagos, Portugal, Algave, 6th August




Saturday 6th August

One of Lisa’s recommendations especially since we were self catering was a visit to the weekly farmers market down opposite the marine, housed in a couple of buildings in the bus stations area.


On our walk down, we past an interesting opening in the city wall.


“Can you tell where we are?”



I think this is near the main town hall?


This is the little “harbour ferry” that takes tourists across this small stretch of water to the beach on the other side.

Another farmer waiting for customers.



After the market, we wandered back across the street, to the harbour for some food.



There were lots of sales pitches where you could go for the local boat trips around the local area to visit the grottos.



After a busy first day, we relaxed back at the apartment.

Lagos, Portugal, Algave, 5th August




Friday 5th August 2011

Our first full day in Lagos, and we didn’t really know where to go.

What we usually try to do on the first day, is walk around, and pick up a few free local maps to see what is the “touristy” suggestions for places to eat, and see.


We had a walk around the old town to familiarise ourselves with the location, and found the marina which is only 5 minutes from the apartments.


If anyone can comment on who this statue is, that would be great !

Lagos, Portugal 2011 Holiday with Photographs



On 4th August 2011, my wife and I took a lovely 14 day break away to Lagos, South Portugal in the Algave.

We bought the package direct from Thomsons (via topcashback).


Over the next few posts, I’ll document some of the great restaurant, and places to visit, and some of the sights I managed to photograph.


Thursday 4th August

Our destination in Lagos, Portugal, was a lovely self catering apartment “Porta da Vila” over in the west side of the old town in Lagos.


“Lisa” out rep at the apartments was fantastic. She was very welcoming, and had plenty of suggestions of places to visit, and restaurants to try which I’ll cover later.
