The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
The Costa de Lisboa extends along the beautiful Portuguese coastline, starting north of Lisbon at the beach town of Ericeira and extending eastwardly to the town of Abrantes. It then heads south along the bank of the River Tagus (Rio Tejo) down to the town of Vila Franca de Xira. Stretching to the southern bank of the river it cuts across country, in the direction of Vendas Novas. Continuing further southwards it takes in Alcácer do Sal and Grândola before going west and meeting up at the sandy beaches of Porto Covo.
The natural wide water expanse and port created by the Estuary to the River Tagus provide good beach locations tourists. Cascais and Estoril are sandy beach towns at the mouth of the estuary, with swimming conditions that are generally calm and sea water that's almost free from pollution.
To the west of Cascais and facing the Atlantic Ocean are two other beaches, Guincho and Costa da Caparica. Guincho is well renowned its high rollers and attracts windsurfers from around the world however not suitablefor families. Costa da Caparica is quite the opposite and enjoyed by people of Lisbon.
Directly south of Lisbon are the towns of Sesimbra and Setúbal. Sesimbra was once a small intimate fishing village before it was discovered by tourism. Setubal is the second biggest port in Portugal. It's naturally sheltered cove, the azure blue shallow sea of Pointinho Cascais and Estoril, and the lovely sandy beaches of Troia make this area a haven for tourists.
Setúbal is connected by two motorways to Lisbon and acts as a dormitory town which supports an active fishing industry. To the north of town is Palmela with its restored castle walls perched high on its hill, hiding within an attractive "Pousada".
Wine, fruit and horticultural products are in abundance in this region. As are marble,granite and schist.
Ericeira is a small fishing village and Atlantic Ocean resort, located 40 km north of Lisbon. This small and idyllic coastal town is blessed with 300 days of sunshine, mild Winter temperatures and sea-breezed Summers, making it an inviting destination all year long. It's often praised as the Mecca of Surf in Portugal. While it's cold and stormy everywhere else in Europe, Ericeira is most likely enjoying spring weather and perfect swells.
The local people are extremely hospitable. The quaint "old village" with its narrow cobblestone streets, characteristic housing, numerous monuments, gorgeous sea, fishing heritage, mouth-watering cuisine and amazing views of the Atlantic, make Ericeira a popular destination for holiday makers.
The old town has the majority of historic attractions within it. These include churches and chapels including the 15th century Santa Marta Chapel. The So Sebastio Chapel dates from the 17th century and is renowned for its unusual architecture - a hexagonal shape with a round dome reminiscent of Arabian buildings. The pillory of Ericeira dates from 1513 and is carved in the popular Portuguese Manueline style.
The former Grand Casino dating from 1919 was later transformed into a cinema but was more recently opened as the Jaime Lobo e Silva Cultural Center.
