Location

Troia Peninsula

Signs of human habitation in Troia date back many centuries. The Roman Ruins are amongst the most important archaeological remains, dating from the 1st Century. They were the biggest complex for the production of conserves and fish sauce in the Western Roman Empire and this is also evidence of the importance of fishing in the local economy since long ago.

Comporta

After Troia, Comporta is a much-appreciated spot for a family beach outing and has some good restaurants. This is a paddy field area, so rice-based dishes are an unmissable specialty. Located on the southern tip of the Tróia Peninsula, the huge sandy extent of Comporta Beach is a regular summer favorite, given good means of access and plenty of parking space.

Carrasqueira's Palafitic Pier

This is is one of the oldest sites in the county. This masterpiece of popular architecture, erected in the 50s and 60s, is unique in Europe and is built on irregular, apparently fragile wooden poles, which serve as a dock for the fishing boats that dock there. As a tourist attraction, the pier continues to fulfill the mission for which it was built: to allow fishermen access to boats, even during low tide.
