About the Tour: South Explorers warmly invites you to join us on a half-day tour that is as rich in history as it is in natural splendor. Departing from Lagos, we'll journey to the iconic landmarks of Sagres and Cape St. Vincent, two sites that have played pivotal roles in Portugal's maritime history. This isn't just a sightseeing tour; it's an immersive experience that takes you deep into the heart of the Algarve's cultural and natural heritage.
The Historical Journey to Sagres: As we make our way to the village of Sagres in our comfortable, air-conditioned minivan, you'll be captivated by the scenic beauty that surrounds you. Sagres is not just a picturesque village; it's a place steeped in history. One of the highlights of this tour is a visit to the Fortress of Sagres, a monumental structure that has stood guard over the Atlantic for centuries. As you walk through its ancient walls, you'll feel the weight of history around you, each stone a silent witness to the explorers and sailors who have passed through over the years.
The Mystique of Cape St. Vincent: From Sagres, we'll continue to Cape St. Vincent, the most southwestern point of the European continent. This is a place of untamed beauty, where towering cliffs meet the relentless Atlantic Ocean. The Cape is home to a unique lighthouse, an imposing structure that has guided mariners for generations.
