Lagos Fort

Lagos Fort points back to the town's heyday as a base for the long voyages undertaken by Portugal's adventurers during the "Age of Discovery". Henry the Navigator used the town as a base for his explorations and the stone castle was built in the 17th century to protect the town and the coast of the Algarve. The fort now houses a small museum on Portugal's maritime history.
