Travelling from Lisbon to Lagos...........

by shanalves

Hello there-
My sister and I will be flying into Lisbon, renting a car and travelling to Lagos. If I rent a car at the airport, is there going to be a location in Lagos where I can drop the car off??? Also, I am Portuguese, not fluent in the language but have the basics down. I would like to gain employment in the Algarve. I am not a citizen of Portugal. I have an undergraduate degree in Business and a MAster's in Education. How could I begin looking for employment and do I need a working visa in order to do this. My dad is a citizen of Portugal so could I get dual citizenship w/ the USA and Portugal?

I do not know if I can tell you anything useful except that there are a lot of ex-pats in Lagos from Germany and England, so you will find a lot of people who speak English. Most of the city revolves around tourism, so I don't know what kind of meaningful employment you can find. I have no idea about a work visa, but not having one will limit your job options even more. That being said, I am sure you will meet some ex-pats who will sympathize with you and point you in the right direction. Also, getting dual citizenship is not an easy process and you better make sure that you risk losing your American citizenship if you are able to become a Portugese citizen. Technically, the US does not allow it. And if they find out you took an oath to become a citizen of another country, they may revoke your AMerican citizenship. Check it out.

If your father is a Portuguese citizen, then you are a portuguese citizen too. You don't have to take any oath to be a portuguese citizen. Just be sure and bring your birth certificate, and your father's birth certificate, and it should be a simple process. You may even do that in the US, with the embassy or at any consulates.

With that done, you won't need any visas

Travel Tips for Lagos

S. Antonio church

by acilina

Another street. The church you see is S. António, The inside of the chappel is all in golden carven wood, but the others rooms are now fonctioning as a museum, where you can see many signs of the ancient inhabitants of this region. Built before 1707 and rebuilt in 1769, after being greatly damage by the 1755 earthquake, this church was listed as a national monument in 1924. Well worth visiting for the remarkable 18th-century blue and white glazed tiles, as well for the lovely Baroque giltwood that frames 8 paintings, supposedly by Rasquinho, an artist from Loulé. The dome boast a magnificent painting featuring, in the centre, a Portuguese coat of arms from the 18th century.

Nothing special - go somewhere else

by ott2007 about Cantinho Algarvio

This local type restaurant on the main restaurant street has a very inviting meny with additional evening specials. As i most local restaurant the theme is fish. However the food wasn't up to standard and there is a lot of similar restaurants to choose from. Guests was also treated differently and we just didn't feel welcomed. Main courses was substandard and starters was a disaster.

Algarve Cliffs

by Leipzig

Near Lagos you can find a spectacular coastline. You hardly can see it from landside. On the quai of Lagos Harbour you get picked up by boats to show you the beauty of the coast. Most tours are held in Portuguese, Spanish, English and German by the driver.
On the tour you'll see the west beaches, the impressive golden rock arches and the caves.

Lagos, Sun, Sea, Golf, Everything I love

by simmel

"Shorts and T shirt"

If you are looking for a place with sun and warm weather all year round, then Lagos is the place to go. OK you can get the odd thunder shower, but its still warm enough for shorts and T shirt even in late Autumn.
If you are a golfer, the summer months can get a bit hot, but if you have got a buggy its not too bad, but at this time of year lying on the beach and swimming is the best bet.

"Eating and drinking"

There are some very good (and also very bad) restaurants in and around Lagos, if you like fresh shell fish, then the places around the harbour is the place to go.
If you are a fan of the English Pubs there are lots of them to choose from both in the centre of town and around the harbour, with prices far below those in the UK, all with English sports TV. Its also worth exploring the many back streets for the small Portuguese restaurants with local specialities. Chinese and Indian restaurants are in abundance. But my favourite is the little pie shop in the middle of town (if you can find it) where you can buy home made Pork pies, Cornish pasties etc etc.

"Travel"

You can fly into Faro from most places in Europe and once there getting to Lagos is easy. You can either catch a bus or go by train, but the best bet is hire a car, its only a one hour drive along the normally traffic free motorway and you can usually get a bargain if you search around. The car will be handy if you want to explore the surrounding countryside.
