Lagos is a old fishing village near the mouth of the Bensafrim river, east of Cape St Vincent. It was walled in the 14th century and despite the town being much damaged in the 1755 earthquake the walls have survived. The main activities now are fishing and Tourism. The streets in the centre of town has been mostly pedestrianised and paved in differing patterns. Along with the brightly painted, whitewashed with coloured trim or tiled housefronts, this makes a very pleasant place for a stroll or even a gelati.
