A great venue for a variety of Portuguese talent, from live theatre, dance, and music. Very reasonably priced. It has a small bar/ coffee shop to while away time before the show. Thoroughly enjoyed.

I quite enjoy walking around the old city of Lagos. There is so much to see of the Portuguese culture ... beginning with the narrow, cobbled streets, the tiled buildings, the forts, restaurants and cafes, fountains and plazas.

If you are ever in the area, spend a few hours walking up and down the streets and get lost. It is only by getting lost that you discover what a town has to offer. But make sure you have a GPS with you.

The old center is certainly worth a visit. Beautiful old streets, houses with old Portuguese tiles. Cozy shops and restaurants where you can eat.

My wife and Me visited Lagos and spent 4 nights there in the beginning of July 2017.
Lagos is highly underrated is what we realised from all the reviews and information we read and researched online before our travels. But yet, we figured from all of that that it was a better place to be located at to explore the Algarve region. And that was correct. But Lagos itself needs a few days to be enjoyed fully. The City Centre is like a walled city. But with No cars allowed. Thats adds to it charm. Its filled with restaurants and shops and cafes and opens up on one side to the sea front and the marina. You can spend hours here just strolling around and finding your best spot. We just randomly picked restaurants for our lunches and dinner and were happy with all of them. You can't really go wrong as each one carries something special. But the best way to judge them would be by the number of people eating or waiting and pick it for another night if you can't get a table the same night. Or do your research online. Lagos is worth the visit and you won't regret it if you love beach towns.

We visited Lagos in December, whilst spending a week in Faro. It is quite a drive from Faro, especially if you opt not to use motorways with your hire car, but we enjoyed the drive and the city was quite different to Faro.

The cultural centre of the town has been carefully restored, there are still areas where the buildings are crumbling and in need of attention but, generally, it looks good and it's potential is certainly being realised, something that couldn't be said of Faro at present.

With Christmas looming, a red carpet had been stapled to the cobbled streets (flat cobbles, easy to walk on) and ran down the middle, giving everything a slightly festive feel. Shops, cafes and restaurants were also generally open, hoping to catch the Christmas shoppers we assume, and the centre felt lively and bustling. It was even warm enough to sit out on the street with a coffee and a pastel da nata and watch the world go by.

I love the Portuguese architecture in old town centres, slightly faded yet elegant and a lot of traditional tiles in use, along with the cobbled streets, often with pictures and patterns created from the use of black and white stones.

We had parked by the marina and entered the old town through one of the original gates, on leaving we wandered out onto the promenade, which has been modernised and is a pleasant walk.

Definitely worth a visit.

I live in Lagos and feel really privileged to have a venue like this. It is a deceptively fronted old building, and behind its modest facade is a 'tardis-like' thing of beauty It has several galleries and exhibition areas, a rather grand auditorium, and an indoor courtyard of relaxing space, served by an excellent cafe. Today I was lucky enough to see a free art exhibition by locally based artist Timo Dillner, and on Friday I'll be attending a concert of traditional Portuguese music. I know I'll enjoy it because I attended last year's concert. This is a great unsung venue and surpasses that of large cities. Long may it survive and thrive

We loved visiting this city. The walkway along the canal was filled with curio booths and the cobbled streets took us past wonderful cafes and shops.

Oh my goodness! My hubby and I fell in love with this place. The shops, the restaurants, the architecture. We had a wonderful time visiting there. Looking at the old buildings, churches, forts feel like we took a big step back in time. We had dinner at one of the local restaurants, it was amazing. Our only regret was that we did not have longer time to stay there. We will certainly return as soon as we can.

A lovely town centre full of quirky colourful buildings amongst the usual white paint with narrow streets and shops and cafes. A charming little town with lots to see
