... Maybe it is because half of Portugal is on the sea, that this small nation was able to produce some of the top maritime explorers in the world and where did it all start....Lagos, 15th century, home to Prince Henry. Believe it or not, his motivation was not commercial, cultural or political.....it was religious! He wanted to see how far Islam had spread, how far had the Muslims got to, so he sponsored, trained and instructed his guys to go out ...

Now it's time for some natural wonders, we steer a course for the coast, about 6 km away on windy and windy mountain roads. This ain't Grampa's Algarve! Sweeping vistas, crashing ...

On a hill near a creek with goats pasturing past it is a big house with a pool.
