Tours in Lagos
old city of Lagos is surrounded by a historic stone wall. A fun
way to experience the old city is to enter from the back of town,
through an arched entry hole in the wall. From there you can wander
around the winding narrow back streets and check out the old architecture
and some very very nice shops. For a tiny town,
I am so very impressed with the unique items that each little boutique
offers. Many of the old street walls are draped with shocks of the
vibrant colour of bougainvillea. Look out for the shelter of the
mini sidewalks, as cars suddenly race past you. Get ready to jump!
be afraid to get lost as your roam. You may take a wrong turn which
just makes for an adventure in this quaint town. You will discover
a cultural blend of the old and the new, from the terracotta flower
pots lining the doorway of a local's apartment to the modern offering's
of some shop keepers to the traditional Portuguese crafts.
connector alley ways expose you to the historic architecture
as you gaze up and admire the intricate wrought iron balconies,
the graceful appliqué of azulejos (tiles) on buildings and
much more. Notice the traditional marble pedestrian streets and
plazas with their embedded signature designs.
for a pastry and a "bica pingada" (tiny coffee with a
drop of milk) and continue on with your journey. Lagos is a small
town and from our experience, wandering around is half the fun in
discovering something new.
