Things to do

Cabo de São Vicente:

Visitors can check out Europe's most powerful lighthouse at the Cape of St. Vincent. The views from atop the lighthouse are breathtaking and well worth the climb. There are often roadside stands on the way to the lighthouse, selling local wares, snacks and drinks.

Hermitage of Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe:

The church of Our Lady of Guadalupe is believed to date back to the 13th century. It is one of the very few buildings to have survived the devastating earthquake of 1755, making it a truly special sight.

Fortress of Sagres:

This fortress was constructed under orders of Henry the Navigator due to the fact that the area provided shelter before attempting the often dangerous voyage around Cape St. Vincent. Like most structures in this area, this 16th-century fortress was greatly damaged during the earthquake in 1755 though there is still an original 16th-century turret.

It was well located for many of our adventures in the Algarve and there was a wonderful traditional restaurant literally two blocks away. We definately needed a car to get around but managed to see Lagos, Salema, Sagres, Silves, and points in between during our week stay; everything was very convenient. There is also a daily market (except Sunday) and a bakery within walking distance so I became addicted to daily croissants. The apartment is small but it was clean with a nice bathroom and well appointed furnishings. The bed was extremely comfortable! It was a quiet neighborhood and absolutely safe. The most marvelous beach, Castelejo beach, is a very short drive away and it is gorgeous with a wonderful restaurant you must visit for dinner at sundown! Stunning! An was a wonderful host and helped "guide" us in when we became lost on arrival. She left plenty of information regarding the area, things to do, places to go and food to try. Bossa Nova Pizza in Sagres is another great place to eat if you are in Sagres.
