Algarve Trip Report, Day Four, Part Two, Lagos

February15

After returning from the cliffs of Lagos we quite accidently discovered that Lagos had a walled city; so we spent the rest of the morning wandering around there.

This cheerful little building was found just inside the gate. We imagined that it was a muster station for guards at one point in history.

I saw the village church as soon as we entered the gates. It became more and more beautiful as it came into view.

We were impressed by the tile on the outside of the homes.

We came upon this beautiful sculpture. I could not determine the name of the piece or the sculptor but I was very fond of it.

We stopped in for refreshment at a beautiful pastry shop right off the square.

We appreciated the location and beauty of this old timer.

It appeared to us to be inhabited by the flowers on the railing.

We appreciated the pedestrian only streets that wound their way around the old town and we loved that they rolled out red carpets for their guests.

The merchants of Lagos sold a variety of items. We even happened upon this surf shop. We enjoyed watching the surfers in their wet-suits on Alvor Beach just down from our hotel.
