Places to visit around Lagos, Algarve

Assuming you have a car, suggest that the following may be off interest:

1) Sagres - Visit the fortress that housed the famous navigation school set up by Infante Dom Henrique which powered Portugal's voyages of discovery 500 years ago.

2)Cape St Vincent - The most south westerly point of Europe.

3) Monchique Village and Mountain. Dominating the Western Algarve, this massif is worth a trip.

4) The far wet coast - explore the beaches and rugged west coast North of Vila de Bispo. Lunch at Carrapateira.

5) Lagos Old Town - One of the few towns in the Algarve that retains its old character.
