Free tour Peniche: Trails and Balconies full of Mysteries (Trilhos e Varandas repletos de Mistérios)

Duration: 2h and 30min
Registered on October 05, 2022

Hi! We are two young people, Diana and Romário and together we are Peniche360. Peniche360 emerged from the fusion between a young lady from Peniche, that learnt to admire her town and all its enchantments, and a young man from Lisbon, that found himself attached to this land embraced by the sea. Or in this case, as people say in Peniche, “drank the water from the Fonte Boa (Good Fountain)”. This is one of the many legends you’ll get to know if you come on a tour with us! We started doing tours because: 1st: Both of us love to travel, to explore, to discover and to get to know more. 2nd: We agreed that Peniche has so much to offer and that not many people really know the core of this place, since most people think that Peniche is resumed to Berlengas and surf... which isn't entirely true. 3rd: We are the only ones doing this in Peniche. 4th: What's the best way to get to know an unknown place? With a local, of course! We take you to places that are hidden and not so touristy. 5th: We'll show Peniche at 360 degrees. We decided to promote its corners, stories, legends and culture in a more integrated and comprehensive way, not only for those who visit our city, but also for those who already live here. Also we have this passion to talk to people and to show them around.

Tour description

🔸During our tour Trilhos e Varandas repletos de Mistérios (Trails and Balconies full of Mysteries), you'll be surprised about the amount of time that we will be walking by the sea. During the tour you are going to get to know more about legends, culture, traditions, curiosities as well as hidden places with historical remains and mysteries. We'll take you to places that are hidden and not so touristy while admiring beautiful landscapes. If the weather cooperates, you’re going to observe part of the Portuguese coast that goes all the way down until Santa Cruz and catch a glimpse of the Berlengas archipelago.  You’ll enjoy certain views from several viewpoints, carreiros (natural coastal recesses) and small beautiful beaches, which are amazing for you to take some pictures.

🔸What we're going to visit on our tour:

  • Fortress of Peniche (where the tour starts)
  • Miradouro do Alto da Vela (viewpoint)
  • Bairro do Visconde (a typical neighborhood)
  • Tromba
  • Carreiro de Joanes
  • Caves and natural balconies
  • Cabo Carvoeiro & Farol do Cabo Carvoeiro (Carvoeiro Cape and the Lighthouse - end of the tour)

🔸If you're having second thoughts on whether you should do this tour with us or not, let us help you: who better to guide you on a tour around town than a local? Oh! Almost forgot to mention that we are the only ones doing it! Why? Because most people think that Peniche is summed up to the beach, surf, and Berlengas. But Peniche is way more than just that and we are here to show you that in just a small piece of land you can find and learn about the heritage of 180 million years and secrets and stories like no other place.

🔸Additional information:

  • Recommended items for the tour: ID, water and food (a snack or a piece of fruit, for instance), sunscreen, hat, comfortable clothing and suitable shoes.
