Visit to Lagoa 24th May 2018

In Algarve, Portugal on May 26, 2018 by cubsur51 Tagged: , , ,

Last Thursday and a short visit to the nearby town of Lagoa. With a population of around 23,000 Lagoa is one of the fairly unspoiled towns in the Algarve region. It’s away from the coast, so is not on the tourist trails. Like many towns here, it is a mixture of the well kept and practically derelict, although I am happy to say that the latter is a minority.

This is the Palácio da Rosa, now the town council Treasury office. Most of the structure dates from the 18th century and was a private residence until 1970.

The town war memorial includes names from recent conflicts in Angola and Mozambique.

There aren’t many places with cattle around here, especially right on the edge of town. Just to the east of Lagoa is a large aeea of very wet land where presumably web-footed bovines are kept.
