Lagos Algarve Photos on Lisbon Journey

I left the Good Feeling hostel for Lisbon, returning east along the Algarve by bus to catch a coach from Lagos. After Lagos, my time was documented in a TravelThruHistory Lisbon and Sintra article. Here’s some photos from my last night at the GF hostel and transit time in Lagos:

Sagres and Vincentine Coast Portugal Photos

The next morning I took the bus to Sagres, which is the most south-western point in Europe. It was an important place during the Portuguese Age of Discovery, with a nautical school set up there by Henry the Navigator.

Sagres to Cape St. Vincent Lighthouse

After looking around Sagres I walked out to the fort (visible above the beach in photo 2) and then up the Vincentine west coast to the Cape St. Vincent lighthouse and monastery. Here’s some photos:

Portugal Algarve Beach Walk Photos

I left Faro for the Good Feeling hostel a little inland from Sagres and Lagos. The first afternoon I just walked inland a little, but finally reached the beach the next morning. In fact, I went to two beaches and saw a megalithic stone on a circular walk to the south. Here’s some photos:

Faro, Portugal, Old Town Photos

Faro, on Portugal’s Algarve, has an historic quarter, with an old fort, cathedral and statues. The statue in the last two photos is in the centre of town, near the marina.

Here’s some photos, also featuring the flowers (1st photo), swallows (3rd photo) and stork(s) (last two photos) seen in previous blogs:
