Curiously called a historical resort city, Lagos is located in the region of Algarve. It is one of the cities and consequently of the counties with greater notoriety, which go far beyond the beach, for its history, its vestiges and cultural heritage that dominate the landscape and life.

This is the first Mountain Bike Centre homologated in the Algarve. We hope it will be the driving force for the birth of other projects in this area, for the development of a network of routes structured throughout the region, also potentiating new tourist products, boosting this niche market of proven profitability by numerous economic studies worldwide. On the other hand, it is necessary to take economic advantage of the current situation and the European guidelines that increasingly encourage the use of the bicycle.

In the effort to revitalize and energize the Mata Nacional de Barão de S.João, where there is already a picnic park and some pedestrian trails implemented, not to mention all its historical past and the pleasant space that it is, this pine forest with a vast extension of acacias, about 10 kilometres from Lagos, will be the strategic base of the project "MTB Center of Lagos". This project aims to show and boost a large part of the interior of the municipality.
