Although Sagres is on the Algarve it doesn't have the same over-developed holiday town feel of some of those towns further east. Situated within a few Km of Europe's most south western point, Cape St. Vincent, the town has a rather windswept, remote feel about it. It comprises of a lively, working harbour, a clutch of bars and restaurants around the square, and perhaps most importantly to many of its visitors a fine beach. Not surprisingly the town's restaurants have a reputation for serving a wide variety of fresh fish. It is however the history, location and surrounding features that make Sagres well worth a visit. In terms of global importance, Sagres' heyday was in the 15th century an this was down to Prince Henry the Navigator. He chose Sagres as his home and location of his school of navigation.Henry's most obvious legacy to present day Sagres is the Henry the Navigator Fortaleza located on the imposing headland of Ponta de Sagres to the north of the town.
