It is not known when Lagoa was founded, and it was only after 1773, when it was elevated to the status of a town, that its history was first documented, but it is known that Estômbar and Porches were important centres in the Islamic and medieval periods and that Ferragudo had defensive ramparts. Fishing and the fish preserves industry breathed life and prosperity into Lagoa at the end of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th.
Nowadays Lagoa is at the forefront of the modern Algarve, its economic success based on tourism and a growing range of industries and businesses.
