Arrive in Lagos tomorrow for a short break ... suggestions and helpful tips please !

by Zincubus

It 's our first time in Lagos or Portugal for that matter !

Any suggestions for making the trip a MAJOR success :)

Must see places ??

Best places to eat out - any little cafe you absolutely LOVE ??
My wife will eat virtually anything I am fussy and only eat plain and boring English / American type of food .

Best places to snorkel - we need rocks and cliffs for that so long sandy beaches are useless for finding fish .

We ave be warned AGAINST hiring a car as the locals drive like race drivers plus we have never driven on the WRONG side of the road .


Any other tips ??


Thanks in advance !

You could visit Faro; the capital of Algarve. It has a nice old core.

About restaurants in Lagos you will have a good choice. I only ate a good sandwitch at a cafe-restaurant looking on the sea. I don't remember the name at the moment.

Must see places:
- the beaches of course - the small ones (a bit crowded this time of the year but still beautiful)like D.Ana and Praia do Pinhão are beautiful and have lots of rocks and cliffs..I'm just not sure about finding fish..but I don't usually go snorkeling so I really don't know.
- Lagos downtown: just have a walk, start at Praça Gil Eanes, go to Rua 25 de Abril (recently it was changed into a limited traffic zone)until you reach to Praça da República. Near this square there's the Igreja de Sto.António (St.Anthony's Church) that is amazingly filled with gold leaf covered wood carvings. If you're into concerts and art exhibitions, in that same area there's Centro Cultural de Lagos - there is a small Jazz Festival that will beggin on 13th August.
- Visit the Marina and just chill out in one of the cafés or bars.
A good place to eat at lunch would be Linda's Beach Bar in Meia Praia - they have good burguers but also have lots of different salads and a few typical dishes. Bahia's (the next bar on the beach) is nice, too.
Pick a restaurant downtown and try the seafood or the fresh fish.
There's also some fast food places like MacDonalds or Burguer Ranch and there are plenty of pizzarias and Italian restaurants (I really nice one would be Bella Italia).
For a inexpensive popular place to eat go to Adega da Marina on Av. dos Descobrimentos - they have good thick steaks, fresh fish and sometimes clams and shrimps.

Hope that the tips will help

Travel Tips for Lagos

NEVER EAT AT THIS RESTRAUNT

by manu11 about THE VACA

i took my family to the vaca in the algarve for dinner.when the salad and fondue arived i saw somthing crawling in the salad , i was disgustedby this, so i confronted the maneger ( sharmaine) . she was extreamly rude to me and after i pointed it out in my salad she visiously grabed it out of my hands and stormed of with it . we began to taste the fondue but it had a bitter taste to it and was curdeled she sent a waiter over i informed the waiter it tasted off (i know how it should taste as my aunt lived in switzerland for many years and often cooked it for me ) the manager came over again , swearing in swiss i belive.when we got up to leave she demanded we pay the bill "even for the salad" or she would call the police.my daughter later informed me that when she went to the toilet it smelt of urine and there was raw sewage on the toilet seat.
worst night of my holiday !!!!!!!!!
avoid being upset on your holiday in the beautiful algarve, DONT EAT AT THE VACA NONE

Church of Santo António

by Leipzig

This breathtaking golden church is highlight of Lagos. It was built in 1769 as chapel in Portuguese Baroque style. The interior is completely gilded and carved.
The church is part of the town museum. This museum is very interesting although it is not very transparent. Not all exhibits are marked with a description and you do not really find a structure in the exhibit halls.

Opening times: 9.00 - 12.30 and 14.00 - 17.00 daily - closed on mondays and fridays

Price: 370 Esc/person

Igreja de Sao Sebastiao

by Willettsworld

This church is located in the northern part of the old town and was built on the site of the Chapel of Our Lady of Conception, built in 1325. In 1463, Bishop João de Mello sponsored the construction of a church which was, in 1490, enlarged by order of D. Joao II and dedicated to St Sebastian. The original main altarpiece (from around 1570-80) contains four panels which are believed to have been painted by Alvaro Dias, one of the most important Algarve painters from the 16th century. The church was badly damaged during the 1755 earthquake and again by another earthquake in 1969. The bell tower dates from 1828.
