Forte De Monsanto, Lisbon

Built on top of a cliff, the Chapel of Sra. Da Rocha allows you to admire the beautiful coast and rock formations. Heading west you will be presented to Ferragudo village, a traditional fishing village that overlooks the Portimão estuary. After crossing the Arade River though the old bridge, you will have the opportunity to contemplate from the top of the Fort of Santa Catarina viewpoint, the river, the mouth of the river and the long Praia da Rocha. Arriving at the charming city of Lagos an optional one-hour boat trip will amaze you as it takes our tourists to Ponta da Piedade caves and rock formations. A must do experience. The historic center still retains its distinctive character, with cobbled streets, authentic restaurants, and an atmosphere which is relaxed and welcoming. A fascinating and unforgettable tour along the coast. An amazing experience to remember.
