Traditions and cuisine

The Fresh fish, seafood, rural and indigenous products, wine, honey, arbutus and regional sweets, especially the famous D. Rodrigo and almond and fig sweets: all are part of the rich heritage of Lagos.

The craft is rich in wicker or palm baskets, pottery, ceramics, embroideries and tapestry. All these products come from a heritage of generations. To prove this, a XV century fair is held in Lagos, every two years, portraying the customs of the Age of Discovery, where the population wears costumes from that time and where you can sample the cuisine of the XV century . This is also a beautiful opportunity to visit Lagos.

Every year, on the 29 August, the traditional Banho 29 is held, in which the rural populations that traveled to the coast to bathe around midnight are remembered. Nowadays, in addition to the party that lasts all day long, there is the bathing in the sea tradition at midnight, with the beaches illuminated by bonfires and animated by the groups that gather around it whilst playing and dancing.
