After reaching the southernmost part of Portugal where the Mediterranean is the limit, one gets the urge of looking beyond the sea, the same urge that became the thriving force that inspired the Portuguese sailors to be the first in the world to venture into the open oceans.
We will start at Praia da Rocha one of the most famous beach resorts in the Algarve. While strolling along the boardwalk or just enjoying a refreshing drink at one of the many bar terraces, you will be able to admire the mythical beach, considered one of the most beautiful in the world, a family holiday destination from all over Europe.
Next we walk the cobbled stone alleys of Lagos, a city with over two thousand years of history, populated by Romans, Visigoths and Moors. The first slave market in Europe was established here. Very close you will see the horizon at Cape St. Vincent, the south-westernmost point of Europe that marks the separation between two different coasts: the Atlantic, beaten by the cold winds and the Mediterranean, bathed with warm waters.
We will depart for Sagres where Henry the Navigator founded the first nautical school in the World. This place still preserves an aura of mystery, with the magnificent red cliffs defying the Atlantic Ocean.
Let us drive you in the comfort of a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, with AC and WiFi, and be escorted by one of our certified professional driver-guides.

We will begin our tour to Algarve by crossing the longest bridge in Europe. Vasco da Gama Bridge is 17,325 in length. It was inaugurated in 1998 during the World’s Fair in Lisbon, Expo-98.
The mythic beach, Praia da Rocha, considered one of the most beautiful in the world, has always been a favorite summer holiday destination for European families, especially the British. We take time, in this extremely cosmopolitan area, to walk along the boardwalk and or have a refreshing drink and enjoy the views of the sea and the spectacular beach.
Lagos has been a city of great commercial activity since the Middle Ages. This city was the starting point of the first Portuguese maritime expeditions to Africa. It was in Lagos that the trade of slaves, gold, and other exotic products originating from the western coast of Africa, first evolved. Leisure time to walk around in one of the most pleasant cities in Portugal and enjoy the local shops, sweets and pastries, and traditional items.
Sagres was the place chosen by Prince Henry the Navigator to establish the first nautical school in the world: The Nautical School of Sagres. This seaside region, privileged by nature, is an ideal stop for a relaxing lunch (optional).
The Nautical School of Sagres founded in 1416 by Prince Hanry the Navigator made the Portuguese the first Europeans to have the supremacy of the oceans, due to the inventions of the triangular sail, the Caravel (ship) and the astrolabe. Visit to this world historical site.
The Cape of Saint Vincente is the south-westernmost point in continental Europe. This plateau enters splendidly into the sea and from it you can contemplate some of the most amazing views of the separation of the cold waters of the Atlantic and the warm ones of the Mediterranean and the coast of Africa.
Returning to Lisbon through “Ponte 25 de Abril”, an impressive suspension bridge which is a replica of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge in California and has become a symbol of Portugal’s capital since its construction in 1966.
