Square, Plaza sights in Lagos
- Sort by:
Near Praça do Infante is a less-than-glorious site - where slaves were auctioned off in Portugal in the 15th century. It now houses an art gallery. Just south of Praça do Infante is a restored section of the stout town walls, built (atop earlier versions) during the reigns of both Manuel I and João III in the 16th century, when the walls were enlarged to the existing outline. They extend intermittently, with at least six bastions, for about 1.5km around the central town.
