Full description
Start your tour early and head for the Cape of St. Vincent, known by the Romans as Promontorium Sacrum in honor of Saturn. Arrive at the southwestern end of Europe, a picturesque scene. See the red lighthouse that shelters a small museum of the maritime discoveries.

Proceed to Sagres, known for Portuguese maritime expansion. Observe the amazing coves on the ocean, vestiges of ancient civilizations and old ruins. Delight yourself with the landscape and the infinite blue covering the skyline. Separated only 1.5 kilometers away from the Sagres Fortress there's another old stronghold ruins, known as Baleeira, that used to defend fishermen from pirates.

Lagos is your next stop, enjoy the panoramic views over Praia da Luz and the beautiful coast on the way to the ancient capital of the Algarve. In Lagos choose between a panoramic van tour passing by Ponta da Piedade or a 1-hour boat tour to see the famous cliffs of Ponta da Piedade from the water. In the walking tour, explore the old medieval city with its ramparts that transport you to another era. Lagos maintains an excellent complicity with the sea, and everything from architecture to gastronomy demonstrates this connection. The boat trip lasts approximately 1-hour and you can see caves formed over thousands of years. 

Afterwards go for a walking tour with your Cool guide and explore the old city with its medieval walls that transport us to other times, where some of the first navigators departed from.
