We have visited the cultural centre on a few occasions, most recently to view the art exhibition there. We have also attended a few events in the theatre. These events were varied from orchestral, to brass band to installation-type productions. Staff very helpful.

Lovely seaside old-town. Easy to find parking and very pedestrian-friendly. I found it to be much less crowded than some of the other seaside towns, it made for a very nice day exploring.

We enjoyed very much the town center of Lagos. The streets are cobblestone and clean, with many shops, cafes, and restaurants. Its a great place and very close to a great beach.

We were disappointed not to be able to find a fado concert in town, but this concert, part of a Flamenco weekend, offered an interesting, if not such an appropriate alternative. We weren't sure just how well the combination of a jazz trio and two...More

Lagos center is really scenic with all the different tiles that decorate the walkways. There are lots of shops to explore and of course restaurants. Charming town and not to be missed.

The old town center has a lot of shops, cafes and restaurants, but it's a waste of money to book a tour. A $10 tuk-tuk can do the same thing. Better yet - walk around.
