Lourinhã:

The municipality is situated on the coast of the Oeste (West) Region. It has an area of 146 square km, and a population of about 23,000, distributed among 11 parishes. Nowadays it has excellent transport links with Lisbon, 63 km away, and the other main Portuguese towns.

According to some accounts, the name Lourinhã is associated with a Roman settlement. In the twelfth century, at the height of the Christian Reconquest, D. Afonso Henriques granted the land now known as Lourinhã to D. Jordan, a French nobleman, for his gallant services in helping to recapture Lisbon from the Moors.

We do not know the exact date of Lourinhã’s first charter, granted by D. Jordan, although some historians put it at 1160. This charter was later confirmed by D. Sancho I, in Santarém, in 1218, and by D.Afonso III, in 1251. A new charter was granted by D. Manuel I, in 1512.

The municipality’s 12 kilometres of coastline, with its combination of beautiful beaches, rugged cliffs and tranquil bays on a route that enjoys bright sunshine all year round, make up a uniquely rich landscape.

These natural conditions are ideal for various nautical sports and activities such as sports fishing, underwater fishing and photography, surfing and jet skiing.

The inland part of the municipality, characterised by a rural landscape and harmonious colours, offers excellent opportunities for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. There are several rural tourism establishments where you can be in direct contact with nature and life on the farm, and take part in lots of outdoor activities, such as horse-riding, tennis, mountain biking, game shooting, mini-golf and go-karting, or you can just relax.

The most important historical sites are the church of Nossa Senhora da Anunciação (also known as the church of Santa Maria do Castelo), the church of the Misericórdia, the convent and church of Santo António, Paimogo Fort, Fonte Lima Park, the Lourinhã Museum and the monument commemorating the Battle of Vimeiro (at which the Anglo-Portuguese army defeated Napoleon’s forces, commanded by General Junot, on 21 August 1808, during the first French invasion).

O surgimento do nome Lourinhã está, segundo algumas versões ligado à existência de uma povoação romana. No Século XII, já em plena reconquista, foi D. Afonso Henriques quem concedeu ao fidalgo francês D. Jordan as terras hoje conhecidas por Lourinhã pelos valorosos serviços prestados por este na conquista de Lisboa aos mouros.

O primeiro foral da Lourinhã, dado por D. Jordan, não possui data certa, embora alguns historiadores o remetam para o ano de 1160, tendo sido sucessivamente confirmado por D. Sancho I, em Santarém, no ano de 1218 e por D.Afonso III, no ano de 1251. Um novo foral foi concedido por D. Manuel I, em 1512.

Os seus 12 quilómetros de costa, onde se combinam belas praias, penhascos recortados e tranquilas baías, numa rota que o sol percorre, quente e luminoso, durante todo o ano, são de uma riqueza paisagística única.

Estas condições naturais convidam à prática de diversos desportos náuticos, pesca desportiva, caça submarina, fotografia subaquática, surf ou, entre outros, o jet ski.

O interior do concelho, caracterizado pela ruralidade da paisagem e harmonia das suas cores, dispõe de excelentes condições para umas férias tranquilas e repousantes. Aí se encontram vários estabelecimentos de turismo em espaço rural, onde se pode estabelecer um contacto directo com a natureza, com a vida agrícola e praticar diversas actividades como a equitação, ténis, BTT, caça, mini-golf, karting, ou simplesmente descansar.

No seu património salienta-se a Igreja de Nª Srª da Anunciação ( também conhecida por Igreja de Santa Maria do Castelo), a Igreja da Misericórdia , o Convento e Igreja de Santo António, o Forte de Paimogo, o Parque da Fonte Lima, o Museu da Lourinhã ou ainda ,entre outros, o Padrão Comemorativo da Batalha do Vimeiro, onde o exército Anglo-Luso venceu as tropas napoleónicas comandadas pelo general Junot em 21 de Agosto de 1808 durante a 1ª Invasão Francesa.
