A few tips for Lagos and the Algarve (Supermarkets, restaurants, visits, activities with children....)

Where to buy food in Lagos
Supermarkets, markets, pastelerias (pastry shops)....
2 minutes drive from the apartment. Good products. Possibility to buy fish, roast chickens, ready meals... You can make your own fresh orange juice to take home. There also is a café, ATMs and a Fnac to buy books, magazines...

Excellent prices, especially for wine. You will need a car to go to the Continente supermarket since it is a bit far from the apartment. Next to Continente there is a sport shop, a clothe shop and an electronic shop.

The Lagos fish market is located on the main avenue. You will find there superb fresh products on the ground floor and first floor and a nice restaurant with lovely views on the top floor. On the ground floor fishermen sell their daily catch, with a wide variety of fish and seafood. There are also 4 butcher shops. On the first floor you can find a range of local farmers produce, including fruit, vegetables, herbs, dried fruits, nuts, oils, sauces, cheeses...

The best place for "pasteis de nata" and to try traditional Algarvian desert like "Dom Rodrigo" and "morgado". You can eat them there, at the "pastelaria" (pastry shop) with an excellent coffee, or take them home with you. Delicious! (Around the corner from fish market)

Excellent seafood restaurant, lovely views of Lagos Bay and beautiful O Camilo beach close by.... down the stairs!! Stop there, on the way back from a walk to Ponta da Piedade, for a white or pink sangria. They are absolutely delicious! You'll have to make a reservation for lunch / dinner especially in summer.

5 minute walk from the apartment. Lovely food, fantastic views especially if you sit at a table right by the cliff. (But they have a grumpy waiter )

A bit of a walk if you don't have a car but you could call a cab.... next to the harbour and Meia Praia, typical Portuguese food in a relaxed atmosphere with very friendly staff. A nice place to eat as much charcoal grilled fish as you like (if you choose the option "all you can eat") for 13 euros!

Typical Portuguese food in a relaxed atmosphere. After you have chosen your fish and while it is being prepared , you can take a stroll in the backyard to look at what a fazenda (farm) used to look like. You will need a car / cab to go there since it is on the road between Lagos and Odiaxere.

A very nice and interesting place in a historical building which used to be a church. You can have a drink on the cute roof terrace with lovely views of Lagos and then have some delicious food in the restaurant underneath. You can also buy nice Algarve souvenirs on the ground floor. They also have a mezzanine with books and music .

One of the finest church in the whole Algarve. Dating back to 1707, re-built after the Great Earthquake of 1755, it is a fine example of the Baroque style of architecture. It has one of the most breathtaking interior and its baroque gilded woodwork decoration is considered to be one of the finest in Portugal. The walls are covered in 18th century blue and white azulejo panels. It is classified as a National Monument.

Completed between 1679 and 1690, the Fort was used to guard Lagos by protecting the river mouth from attack. In the 1600´s the coast was under regular attack of pirates and corsairs, in addition to the Spanish who bombarded the Algarve during the Portuguese Restoration War (1640–1668). This led to the construction of a string of forts.

This building in Praça do Infante Dom Henrique has a tragic history. It is widely believed to have been the first slave market in Europe. In 1444 Prince Henry the Navigator set up a trading post in Arguin Bay, an island off the coast of Mauritania in West Africa. From 1444 onwards the West African slave trade continued and within 10 years it is believed that around 800 slaves were transported along this route annually.
