Praia da Luz


The Luz parish, located 7 km away from Lagos town, owes its name to the village’ church (Igreja da Luz) that, though very affected by the 1755 earthquake, ended by being repaired with the local’s contribution.

The increasing demand of the beach lovers, mainly from 1928, marked the shifting to a sun-beach tourism model and to the name itself has been added the key word: “Luz Beach”.

By being disintegrated of the Santa Maria parish, the Luz village became independent constituting one of the greatest hubs for the Lagos development.

Although the increasing demand being responsible for the urbanisation of what starts to be totally rural, Praia da Luz remains charming and enchanting, especially for the truly sun and beach lovers.
