Ponta Da Piedade
The pictures shown below were taken while para-gliding close to the cliffs that form this promontary to the West of Lagos town.

The area here is full of massive rock formations hollowed out by the sea creating caves, stacks and grottos that can best be viewed on a boat-trip. There is a lighthouse on the very edge incorporated in the old coastal fort that has stood guard here for centuries, which you can see in the top photo with the red roof. Lots of parking available and some interesting cliff-top walks and beaches to be found. Ponta da Piedade means Point of Piety.
