In our Algarve Tour from Lisbon the first stop will be in Lagos, a city with a beautiful natural harbor and the sea, which eventually boosted the Portuguese expansion in the fifteenth century, here had lived Infante D. Henrique during the Discovery period making Lagos a important trade center of the various exotic materials that arrived in Europe.
Walking in the center of Lagos is to dive into a history book streets names are mostly allusive to the Portuguese Age of Discovery, recalling this prosperous Portuguese period, which from here Gil Eanes departed from here to get around Cape Bojador and that Lagos was the first European slave market.
If the weather permits we will take a boat trip in Lagos, the caves of Piedade, their rock formations are known worldwide, in these small boats we can get very close to the rock formations and even enter some caves.
When we think of the Cape of Sagres we unconsciously remember the Infante Dom Henrique’s school of navigators, it is now known to be only a legend, but we know that Cape of Sagres was of great importance to the Portuguese Maritime Expansion, a strong maritime, of long construction. It was not completed until 1794 when it began in the 15th century.
Like all the capes in Portugal, Galicia, Ireland or even Gran Britain, the Cape of Sagres was for centuries the representation of the end of the world, the point where the land ends and the sea begins, the point of passing into the unknown, the feeling of fear, the sea monsters for all these reasons these cables like the Cape of Sagres are divinized in one way or another, in this giving the case of the Phoenician Baal cult, later romanized to Saturn or even to Hercules.
