shops/supermarket closing times on Christmas Eve. Restaurants open on Christmas Day

by joseana

I have some friends arriving in Lagos on Christmas Eve for a short Christmas break. Because of flight arrival time in Faro it is likely to be around 6.00pm before they arrive in Lagos. Does anyone know the closing times of supermarkets (e.g. Pingo Doce, Intermarche, Liedl, Modelo, etc.) in Lagos on Christmas Eve. Also, I know quite a few restaurants in Lagos traditionally close during the month of December for holidays and do not reopen until January. Does anyone know of any restaurants which remain open on Christmas Day itself for Christmas Dinner? Any information would be gratefully appreciated

Re: shops/supermarket closing times on Christmas Eve. Restaurants open on Christmas Day

by cubsur

It is difficult to be specific but almost all shops close at around 6 or 7pm on Christmas Eve and are of course closed on Christmas Day.

If your friends will be hiring a car, I suggest that as soon as they leave the airport they head into Faro and about a mile down that road there is a large Pingo Doce eupermarket and opposite, in the Forum Algarve, is a Jumbo hypermarket. For the latter go round the roundabout and follow the signs to the underground parking area.

That way they can stock up at least for a couple of days until the Lagos shops are open again on the 26th.

If on the 24th they wait until they get to Lagos, they could well find everything already closed.

Sorry I cannot help with the restaurant question.

Travel Tips for Lagos

A trip to Spain

by acilina

If by any chance it's raining and beach is not very pleasant you may take the Via do Infant road and in 2 hours or less you are in Ayamonte, Spain. It's different.

In the way yoy may stop in many others interesting places.

This time I stoped in Silves and saw the Castle and the Fabrica do Inglês

Prince Henry the Navigator's Statue in Lagos

by dlytle

One of the most formidable milestones in the quest for a sea passage to the Orient was Cape Bojador, a headland on the bulge of Africa that struck terror in the hearts of medieval seafarers. It was an awesome promontory because of the myths and legend surrounding it, and because of the very real and treacherous winds and currents that made it difficult for sailing ships of the day to both round it and return.

The first European captain to accomplish this feat was Gil Eanes, Lagos' most famous son. He did so in 1495 at the behest of Henry the Navigator after many other sailors had failed.

Both Prince Henry and Gil Eanes are justly commemorated with statues. Prince Henry’s statue presides over the Praca da Republica while Gil Eanes’s statue is in front of the town walls a little farther along to the west. Lagos also has a third statue, one of the boy-king, Sebastiao, who precipitated the demise of the Aviz dynasty in the 16th century by sailing from Lagos to a disastrous defeat in Morocco.

Just before they set sail, Sebastian, then aged 21, is said to have given a final pep-talk to his troops from a small Manueline-style window, which you can see, fairly high up, in a corner of the town walls just to the left of Henry's statue.

Municipal Museum

by Willettsworld

This museum surrounds the Church of Santo Antonio which you'll pass through on your way round. To say this museum is a little eccentric is an understatement. It has an amazing haphazardness about it with anything and everything being displayed from Roman items to articles brought back from Macau and even bits of the Berlin wall! There's also some prehistoric items, religious artefacts, coins, money, medals, 17th and 18th century paintings and a model of, I believe, a fictional town. Well worth a visit as the church is an absolute must.

Opening hours: 09.30h to 12.30h and 14.00h to 17.00h. Closed Monday and holidays
