Have a nice weekend !

Ericeira is a lovely traditional fishing village that has developed enormously during the 20th century, becoming more and more a summer resort. Nevertheless it has been able to maintain its original characteristics and its own individual atmosphere, with old winding narrow streets filled with colourful houses over the ocean and a very special light.
Fifty kilometres from Lisbon, in an easily accessible area, its beaches are very crowded during summer time, and are considered among the best in Europe for Surfing. In fact, in Ribeira d`Ilhas Beach is held every year one of the World Surfing Championship contests.
A visit to Ericeira is also an excellent opportunity to try the shellfish and fresh fish dishes, the speciality of the regional cuisine, available in every of the many Restaurants in the village and in the surroundings of Ericeira as well.

The Chapel of St. Sebastian is located in Ericeira, Mafra municipality. Chapel of the seventeenth century, situated outside the village, the interior is fully lined with tiles.
The small chapel of St. Sebastian, is beside the road from Sintra and Ericeira. It has origins in the Middle Ages and a claim made by the people of Stourbridge to the Patriarch of Lisbon, so they could have a "small chapel, with the baptismal font and chaplain, avoiding in this way, having to travel to the church of Santa Maria de Sintra which was far away and transport was scarce and difficult to arrange.
It is believed that the whole temple that has survived to the present day has been fully constructed (or, at most, rebuilt) at the turn of the century.
