Legend has it that the Fruit Square was offered by the Queen Dona Leonor to the agricultural producers of the region, in order to sell there their products. Even though there is no historical proof of that offer, the truth is that the Fruit Market is working still today in the former spot where it started in the end of the 15th century. Every single day the colourful market stands are set in the only daily open-air market in the country.

On the confluence between the Óbidos Lagoon and the sea, Foz do Arelho Beach throws up the choice between two very different types of beach. On the one side the Lagoon, a place of great natural beauty with its banks covered in thick vegetation and its gentle waters ideal for children and windsurfing, benefiting from the breeze that normally blows here. On the other side, the open ocean, rough but without any significant undercurrents creating excellent surfing conditions with an EU Blue Flag testifying to the quality of the waters off this beach.

Once a tiny village in the hills of Santarém between Lisbon and Oporto, Fátima is now town of around 10,000 people globally renowned for the religious visions which took place here in 1917 and which have made it an important pilgrimage centre for the Catholic faith. Interestingly, given its now super strong links to the Catholic Church, name Fátima itself originates from a Moorish girl’s name. Legend tells us that in the eleven hundreds, a girl of that name converted to Catholicism in this region and her name was transferred to the village.
