What to expect

Early in the morning we set off to the Cape of St. Vincent, or Promontorium Sacrum as the Romans nicknamed it, in honor of Saturn, an ancient god. The legend says that St. Vincent was buried in a hermitage and the chapel would be destroyed later. It is best to prepare your camera for absolutely stunning photos. Nowadays, there is a red lighthouse that shelters a small museum depicting the period of the maritime Discoveries and some old Fortress ruins remain.

We then proceed to Sagres, a key location in the history of Portuguese maritime expansion. Prince Henry the Navigator, ordered to construct a fortress in this place to protect the vessels that made the connection between the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic. Here we will also be able to observe the amazing coves on the Ocean. Delight yourself with the landscape and the infinite blue covering the skyline. Then get ready to explore the incredible Fortress, dating back to the 16th century.

Lagos is our next stop. This nice Algarvian village is very popular among the youngsters, and it is not too difficult to understand why. The paradisiacal beaches and their cliffs, a vibrant nightlife and an active surfing community make Lagos an obligatory point of travel. Here you can choose a walking tour or a boat trip. In the walking tour, we will explore the old medieval city with its ramparts that transport us to another era. The boat trip lasts (+/-) 1 hour and you can see caves formed over thousands of years, an authentic natural wonder that does not leave anyone disappointed.

After an invigorating lunch at a regional cuisine restaurant ('tasca'), we set off for Fóia, it is the highest point of the Algarve region. There are gorgeous views at the summit allowing us to see clearly the extent of the coast. We continue to Caldas de Monchique, a thermal complex dating from the Romans. With verdant vegetation, this place is set in a beautiful valley. Explore the place at your leisure and feel the well-being invade your body and spirit.
