Praça Ribeira, Ericeira, Portugal, 2017 [open in full screen]  

 
 

This is description from our previous visit to this place in 2010: "This is one of the most pleasant public places I have visited. Its modest size and not so attractive built environment is not preventing this praça to offer lot of seats protected form the sun and fantastic views of the Atlantic ocean. Plaça is overlooking main city beach and busy, still fully functional, fishing port.

  Except that seven years later there are much more tourists even at this part of the year [mid April] nothing significantly changed. Mainly locals are occupying most of the available seats and enjoying their city.

Tourists are in the restaurants and cafes in the background, they are obviously more willing to spent same money.

  We will be coming back to Ericeira, so expect new report from this exciting space.

You can also enjoy more photos from the area on our photoblog.
