The wonders of Benedita

There is a very old rivalry between Benedita and Turquel. Until the decade of 1960, Benedita was a poor village, even smaller than Turquel. Then, with the support of a wise priest, Benedita started growing, becoming for several years, the fastest growing place in Europe.

Turquel stood behind, and rivalry gave place to some envy.

Times have changed, Benedita slowed down, Turquel got some development too, and now both places tend to live together, sharing space and opportunities.

But... rivalry makes part of cultural heritage!

So, if you don't mind, as a good citizen of Turquel, I'm pleased to show you in the top of this text the most beautiful picture of Benedita.

The other beauties

I was kidding!

Benedita has several wonderful things; a road to Turquel is the top of them. But you may go further, climb the mountain of Candeeiros, and from the top you will have nice views over Turquel, with Alcobaça, Nazaré and the sea in background.

PS - The fun will be confined to this intro. I promise that I will treat Benedita as seriously as every other place in all that I will write from now.
