About Lagos :
The city's old name - Lacobriga - indicates that its origins are Celtic and date back to approximately 2,000 years B.C. The 5th century was a golden age for Lagos. For 40 years, thanks to its location across the sea from Africa, the city became a port of departure and arrival for the vessels that set off year after year on voyages of discovery along the coast of that continent. A centre for trade in iron, gold, silver arid other exotic merchandise brought back from Africa, Lagos attracted merchants and bankers, Portuguese and foreign alike, and poured its wealth into new churches and sumptuous houses. New city walls, built in the 16th century marked the urban expansion of the city, which from 1573 was an episcopal see and residence of the governors of the Algarve. The earthquake of 1755 and the tidal wave that followed in its wake destroyed much of the city, which only began to recover some of its former prosperity in the mid 19th century. Today Lagos is a bustling city, proud of it's past. There is a modern harbour for yaughts and due to many foreigners that have chosen this city for a second home or holiday home there is a large choice of restaurants, bars and other amenities.
