Lagoa, Faro Portugal

Situated some four miles (6.5 km) inland from the magnificent coastline for which this municipality of the Algarve is renowned, the small city of Lagoa has a rural feel that contrasts significantly with the cosmopolitan atmosphere of its popular seaside resorts. Inserted in a traditionally agricultural and important wine-producing area, Lagoa lies on a small hill rising above flatlands that allegedly once held the lagoon that gave the city its name. The charming old city centre of whitewashed houses, cobbled streets and flower-adorned lamp posts is dominated by the main parish church, dedicated to Our Lady of the Light. Rebuilt at the end of the 18th Century after destruction in the 1755 earthquake, the church still retains its original 16th Century Manueline-style door and contains some beautiful 17th and 18th Century religious artefacts.
