In the whitewashed town of Évora walk along the narrow streets visiting some of the most important monuments including the Roman Temple, the Romanesque-gothic Cathedral, Saint Francis Church whit the “Bones Chapel“, and the University. At the market see and feel the richness of products used to prepare traditional foods of the Portuguese cuisine.

Continue through the golden sands of the Algarve to Lagos. Accommodation.
 
Day 3 (Monday)         LAGOS / PONTA DA PIEDADE / SAGRES / CABO DE SÃO VICENTE / LAGOS
Breakfast at the hotel. The Algarve has the call of the sea that led to the discovery of the New World.

Continue to Sagres, a fishing port, for a visit to the fortress and Prince Henry’s School of Navigation. Continue travelling along the cliffs to Cabo São Vincente, the most southwestern point in Europe before arriving into Lagos. A cosmopolitan town with marina and fishing port, you can taste the delicious Algarve dishes such as the seafood cooked in a copper pan (cataplana).
