Ericeira Old Town
We decided to make a lunch stop at Ericeira on our way from the airport to our hotel. This traditional Portuguese fishing village is a top surfing destination but also has plenty to explore for culture-lovers. Ericeira has a charming and authentic old town with narrow cobblestone streets filled with old houses, cute cafés, and restaurants. There are some great seafood restaurants to choose from - we ate at Marisqueira Ribas and savored all sorts of seafood (we had some of the famous local delicacy, percebes). Not far from the restaurant is the popular surfer destination, Fisherman's Beach.
