Muralhas de Lagos (Lagos City Walls)


The Lagos town walls date back as far as the Roman period. They were rebuilt by the Arabs and considerably enlarged during the 16th century between the reigns of D. Manuel and Filipe I, because of the need to protect the growing city centre.

These walls have nine towers that were built for artillery and there are seven gates.

In the late 16th century, one section of the wall was turned into a residence for the Governors of the Algarve.
