We went to Lagos and Ponta da Piedade yesterday. Ponta da Piedade has easily been one of my favorite spots in Portugal. It is right outside of Lagos and they have great trails to walk around to get views of the natural rocks. As you go down the stairs to the water, there is actually a water taxi station that is very busy. It is crazy to go to sights that don’t have fences or railings to keep you from falling off the cliffs. All of the sights are free so they don’t have any idea how many people visit.
Parking has been no problem in some towns, and other towns, it has been too difficult to find a spot. I can’t imagine how summer months are with all of the tourists. Yesterday was around 100 degrees outside so I was happy when I got close parking spots.
