The windswept cliffs of the Sagres Peninsula by any other name would be World’s End – or at least that’s what they thought in the 15th century. Until Henry the Navigator began exploring, it was thought the ocean horizon was the edge of the earth. And the first stop on this trip is the 16th-century, cliff-top fortress where Henry planned his adventures. Back then, the fort was his training school for the sailing elite. Next you’ll head to the Cape of St Vincent where Lord Nelson and Sir Francis Drake both battled the Spanish during their naval careers. From here you can see miles of bright blue sea and the rugged cliffs of the coastline - it’s nothing short of spectacular. And the final photo-stop of the day comes in Lagos, which is regarded as one of the "must see" towns of the Algarve due to its rustic charm and nine beautiful beaches. Here you’ll visit the building where the first ever slave market was held.
