Location Information:

Praia da Luz ["Beach of Light") is a village and resort located about 6 km from Lagos in the Algarve, Portugal. The resort developed around the old fishing village.

Praia da Luz (also known as "Luz de Lagos", "Villa da Luz" or "Luz") is the name of both the village and the beach. Residual activities from its origins as a fishing village are now only found in isolated pockets to the west, and the area is now dominated by several holiday-villa complexes. Praia da Luz beach is an intermediate size Blue Flag beach with two distinct zones: the white sand characteristic of Algarve beaches and the 'rock zone'. The water is clean and transparent but the temperature is somewhat variable.

The church of Nossa Senhora da Luz (Our Lady of the Light), from which the village takes its name, was badly damaged in the 1755 Lisbon earthquake and its restoration was funded by local contributions. There is also a Roman archaeological site that was classified as IIP in June 1992
