Lagos is a municipality in the Barlavento region, in Algarve, Portugal. The fresh air comes from the Atlantic ocean and the Bensafrim River. The old part of the city is like a castle, circled by the city walls, that were constructed during the 16th century. On a hill behind the fish market, you will find the church of St. Sebastian with a breathtaking view from up there.
