The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
In the central section of the Portuguese coastline, intense reflections on the water lend their name to this happy destination: Costa de Prata (Silver Coast).
Located between Lisbon and Oporto, with the country's largest motorway (the A1) crossing it in the north-south direction is Central Portugal and its Silver Coast. The mild temperatures and white sandy beaches offer one the choice between practicing water sports and the calm life of the seaside.
As one of the most economically developed regions in the country, Costa de Prata is also home for famous
traditional art treasures, such as its porcelain and crystal, as well as its gastronomy, strongly influenced by the sea and counterbalanced by its tasty Bairrada wines and mouth-watering sweets. In the fishing villages or urban historic centres, the kindness of the people is but another asset to add to this bountiful area's vast list of qualities.
Atouguia da Baleia is a small village that belongs to the City Hall of Peniche, lying in the shelter of a great headland on Portugal's rugged Atlantic coast, this area is most famous for its lace-making and numerous fish restaurants, which during the summer serve up some of the tastiest sardines in Portugal.

In Largo 5 de Outubro, the Church of the Misericórdia has 17th-century painted ceiling panels depicting the life of Jesus Christ and patterned “azulejo” glazed tiles from the same period.
3-km walk eastwards lies the breezy Cabo Carvoeiro and the Chapel of Our Lady of Remédios, which contains 18th-century blue and white “azulejo” glazed tiles. Laced with grottoes and coves, the Berlenga Islands are an hour's journey by boat from Peniche. Berlenga Grande, the largest of the group, is a nature reserve with nesting sites for seabirds.
