The city’s old name - Lacobriga - indicates that its origins are Celtic and date back to approximately 2,000 B.C., and for a long period it was a port visited by Phoenicians, Greeks and Carthaginians.
During the Roman period the city prospered and grew, and it became necessary to build a dam to supply water and a bridge to span the Bensafrim river. In the 10th century the Arabs built a ring of ramparts, but this was not enough to stop the Christians conquering the city in 1249.The 15th century was a golden age for Lagos. For approximately 40 years, thanks to its location across the sea from Africa, the city became a port of departure and arrival for the vessels that set off year after year on voyages of discovery and it became a centre for trade in ivory, gold, silver and other exotic merchandise brought back from Africa, New city walls, built in the 16th century, marked the urban expansion of the city, Today Lagos is a dynamic and bustling city, proud of its past.
