Location

Praia da Luz (beach of the light) is a small, quiet town located just 6 km from Lagos. Luz is a former fishing village with many small well-kept houses, a few high-rise buildings and one hotel on the outskirts. Thus, the village is characterized by typical, whitewashed houses with rich flowers.

On the palm-lined promenade, there still exist more simple stalls than exclusive boutiques, and the local fishermen are still present. There are supermarkets, restaurants, bars and disco´s in the neighbourhood Nevertheless, the place is quiet and with its beautiful sandy beach ideal for families.

An attraction is a small Roman ruin and a historic wall from the Muslim period. The village church "Senhora da Luz" was built in 1874. It has a beautiful altar 'talha dourada ", ie wood carvings coated with gold leaf. Opposite the church is the former stronghold of the Fortaleza Luz, where today the 'Restaurante Fortaleza "resides. It was built 400 years ago and sold in the 70s to an American couple.
