4 Houses in Lagoa

Houses Lagoa

Lagoa used to be located directly on a lagoon, hence the name Lagoa. Nowadays, this is no longer the case and the place is best known for the wine that is produced there. It is a small holiday resort that still has the traditional appearance of the Algarve.

Lagoa centre

The city center consists of picturesque white houses, narrow streets and beautiful squares. A simple but beautiful church to visit is the Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Luz (Church of Our Lady of Light). The church was built in the 16th century and rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake. The windows are very beautiful and the church is well maintained.

Near the above church you will find Convento de São José (Monastery of Saint Joseph). The monastery was built around 1710 and later fell into disrepair. A major renovation has restored the building to its former glory. Currently, the building is used as the cultural center of Lagoa, and there are exhibitions of paintings, photographs and sculpture. A bonus: the entrance is free.

Beaches

Lagoa is close to some of the Algarve's famous beaches such as Albandeira, Benagil, Carvoeiro and Marinha. The almost magical beaches are famous for their brightly colored cliffs and crystal clear waters. It is good to relax on the beach and in the water. Various water sports, cave excursions and dolphin excursions are organized.

Hiking

Close to Lagoa is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the Algarve: Percurso dos Sete Vales Suspensos (hiking trail of the 7 hanging valleys). The path runs from Praia de Vale Centeanes in the west to Praia da Marinha in the east. While walking you will enjoy the most breathtaking views and rock formations the Algarve has to offer. The whole path is approx. 12 km. long, but it is really advisable to walk (a part) of it.
