Mar d’Estórias arose from a desire to create in Lagos a place that is multifunctional and brings together Portuguese culture, tradition and customs by selling products, services and experiences
Mar d’ Estórias is the space that allows you to know the very best of Portugal — see, try and take us with you, inscribed in the memory and heart
Born in a dream, the idea needed a home that could host the stories, tastes, aromas, textures and the experiences of a simply unique Portugal. And so “Mar d’Estórias” has come to life in Lagos’ Old Town Centre, amidst other places of great touristic and cultural interest.
Mar d’Estórias intends to be an innovative place that values everything Portuguese with special emphasis on the Algarve. It was planned to provide a balanced passage between the different areas of the shop, the cafe/bistro, the art gallery and crowned by the rooftop terrace bar with a sea view. The experience will be to absorb culture and traditions, where the taste of the gastronomy, the inspiration from the events, the excellence of the genuine Portuguese products and the identity of the Lusitanian people are all in one building. Customs, traditions and actions dictate the identity of a people. Mar d’Estórias tells the stories of these people, close to the sea, in a building that is an infallible testament to time. The idea is that you enjoy this story and become a part of it.

I have always been very curious and interested in knowing how things are made. I love handicrafts and anything made by hand that tells a story. Mar d’Estórias is a dream come true.
Chef & Food Lover
I love food and from a very young age developed a taste for the worlds’ flavours, colours and textures. There is nothing like inscribing in history what is best in gastronomy. That is my role.
I’m very connected to my roots and grew up valuing our culture and the best the country has to offer. It is based on this learning that I will communicate with you and for you at Mar d’Estórias.
I love dawn, nature, travelling and the arts. I like to create and recreate, looking for new meanings in the ways of communicating. Being a part of this project means working daily at what I most love.
I am passionate about the good things of life and I love this authentic, traditional and gastronomically rich Portugal. At Mar d’estórias, I’ll be this enthusiastic person looking for what really matters: client’s satisfaction.
