This is a little town with a big reputation in the surf community. With full-time residents numbering in the hundreds, Peniche has made a name for itself on the international surfing circuit for the (sometimes tragically) great waves at Supertubos beach. On the less extreme side, Peniche is also increasingly becoming a popular vacation spot for Brits looking for something ...

Atouguia da Baleia used to be a whaling harbour-"baleia" means whale in portuguese. In spite of its relatively small size, it has an interesting architectural and artistic patrimony and is well worth a visit

The historic city of Óbidos is a beautiful and unique location in Portugal. The city is built within the walls of an ancient castle and has many small restaurants with delicious food. If you want the complete experience you should stay in the Pousada do Castelo, a hotel located in the towers of the castle!

Almada is across the river from central Lisbon, easily accessible from the Cais do Sodré ferry terminal. Once you've crossed the river and land in Cacilhas, take a local bus up Cristo Rei. It ought to be a major tourist destination for the Lisbon area but, for some reason, the city does very little to advertise it and, as a ...

I planed to visit Nazare, but got off at the wrong stop Alcobaça accidently. I understood just now the beautiful mistake made me unexpectedly meet one of the UNESCO World Heritages, Alcobaça Monastery (Mosteiro de Santa Maria de Alcobaça). http://www.sacred-destinations.com/portugal/alcobaca-monastery 這天下午我決定去小漁村Nazare。為了趕四點十五分的bus，幾乎是又跑的。到那理，買好票後只剩五分鐘了。 過了leiria，我看了時間，應該是五點五十分，照時刻表，該是nazare，於是下車了。我一下車就去買回程票，豈料，站務人員說這裡是Alcobaça! 他說已經沒有車子回coimbra，我要坐晚上七點時分的車回leiria換車，而那裡要到晚上十一點才有車子。我只好問問這裡有沒有地方可以觀光，既來之則安之。 幸好我下錯站，否則永遠不知道葡萄牙有這麼人性化的教堂。 每到一個城市，不管大城還是小鎮，重頭戲都是教堂。尤其是porto，幾乎重要景點都是教堂，更別說coimbra大學內就有好幾個各具特色教堂了。但是，今天我終於遇到一個教堂結合信仰與人民生活。 葡萄牙的教堂都有很悠久的歷史，在我看來，應不僅僅是人民祈禱、唱詩歌與告解之處，拜訪過那些唱詩歌的場所，我一直期待能發現多一點元素。真正好的建築物不只在其歷史，還在於它與人們建立的關係。教堂，不單單承載上帝與人類的心靈連結，更該具本身像人們對話的聯繫。這個教堂內好幾個會議廳和活動禮堂，都保存著歷史的痕跡，不再只是歷史的珍寶，更是能讓當地民眾攜家帶眷活動的好場所。大廳裡一群孩子在老師的指導下排練舞蹈，家長們在一旁觀看。瞧，廣場的溜滑梯上孩子們天真的笑容，以及旁邊空地正在為蘋果挑向上色的兩個孩子，這個教堂既古老又年輕，與時俱進，貼近當地人的呼吸脈動。 好的建築，建築再信仰之外的日常生活，最理想的建築物，最跳躍的心跳，唯有Alcobaça的教堂。 天意，讓我邂逅Alcobaça，讓我巧遇觀光指南沒提到的小鎮，讓我與上帝、人類、時光相契的建築物相遇。
