various maps of Praia da Luz and the Algarve

A few maps and links to maps of Luz, Lagos and the Algarve you may find useful.
Don't forget to pick up a 'freemap' whist visiting the Algarve. They cover most major towns and are available most everywhere. Invaluable! The recent addition of the searchable Google Map is a bit of an experiment at the moment, so sorry for any 'hiccups', you may have to add Portugal after the town name you are looking for e.g. Lagos Portugal.
