Ponta Da Piedale Lagos
#1 of 165 Sights & Landmarks in Faro District
Wonderful views here, Lagos is a wonderful place with a wonderful scenery...beautiful scenes to take pictures with or to absorb the wonderful landscape!
Stunning views , there are steps leading down to the sea , just watch your footing and wear the right footwear, its a bit of a challenge climbing the steps on the way up , the memories and the view are worth it .

Palacio de Estoi Faro

We enjoyed a glass of Vino Verde on the terrace overlooking spectacular gardens and great views, well worth an outing from Faro.

Church of Divino Salvador Alvor

It is a beautiful church both inside and out, stunning views over the harbour and the town greet you as you approach the top of the hill.
