History & Culture

Portugal in general is known for its culture and history.  Many famous journeys set sail from our sandy shores.  Therefore the local culture, heritage and history of our surrounding area is on display and easily accessible.  From museums to markets, sea faring folk to the blown on a breeze whispers of Fado music coming from an alley hiding a local Festa (festival),  Culture is all around us.  If you want more just a short drive away are the historic towns of Obidos and Alcobaça, plus many more historic treasures.

Culture is a way of life here.  When in Rome..  Enjoy it, embrace it, and live it!
