Sagres is a town in the southwest coastal corner of Portugal. The population in 2011 was 1,909. The town overlooks some of the Algarve’s most beautiful scenery. There is an ‘end-of-the-world’ feel with its sea-carved cliffs and empty desolate fortress high above the ocean. It is historically associated to Portugal’s impressive nautical past, but today there is only a reminder statue of Henry the Navigator. . Its appeal lies mainly in its sense of isolation (in contrast to the dense Algarve), as well as fine beaches. It has a laid-back vibe and charming cafes and bars.
