    Seafood Vivariums in the Furnas

    Ericeira - Portugal

    Eating seafood is "mandatory" in Ericeira, and you may stroll on the cliffs, watching the holes made in the rocks to keep the lobsters (now empty, I think). Most people use these cliffs to lay in the sun, catching the strong iodine.

    In 1971 I was taken at night to a terrific place for military training. I had to descend in slide, from a steep hill to what seemed to be a beach. 36 years later I went back to that place, about 10 km south of Ericeira, and... terrific? My God! How subjective things can be. It's a common empty beach, with a calm small river and... the hills of memory!

    Pillory

    Ericeira - Portugal

    Medieval symbol of justice, most of the small towns with discreet history are proud of their pillory.

    Ericeira is no exception, and in 1924 they reconstructed it, with the original stones, buried in place when Ericeira was lowered from "vila" to "freguesia".

    Dated from the XIV century it still keeps the rings were the convicted were tied.

    Take a day trip to Sintra

    It is a nice getaway from Ericiera, and it isn't too far. It takes just over an hour if you take the bus. If you have your own transportation, it only takes about half an hour to get to Sintra.
    Just go there wander around it's narrow alleyways and feel the old times come to life again.

    This picture is from Ericeira. It is nice little village north from Lisboa.
    The views from this bench is marvellous, especially at sunsets.
    In the village are excellent fishfood restaurants.

    We stayed at Hotel de turismo das Ericeira, wich has beautiful views to Atlantic ocean. There is also couple of swimming pools(one with sea-water).
    Good value, absolutely.

    The sea-gulls like also to watch the sea... from the roofs, and the TV aerial is a higher place to look!
