So why not visit. Another fortress and rugged coastline- out to the Cape Carvoeiro.
The sixteenth century fortress/Fortaleza at Peniche was one of the dictator Salazar's most notorious jails expanded to accommodate the growing crowds of political prisoners.
Rugged coastline with crashing blue water around the Cape with its lighthouse and views over to the Island of Behlenga 10 km away offshore.
- Pros:Historic buildings, lots of people visiting for the local seafood and a festival day out at the Cape.
- Cons:Got absolutely lost on the way back from Peniche - by the time i found my way i was so frustrated!
- In a nutshell:Must be lovely in summer - especially the boat trip to Ilha Berlenga
Cabo (cape) Cavoeiro is only 45 minutes walk from Peniche - or 5-10 minutes drive! but it took a while even with the car... more travel advice
