Places to visit:
If you are looking for a holiday where visiting places of interest is a high priority then Atouguia da Baleia and Peniche won't disappoint you.
In the small village of Atouguia da Baleia you can visit the ruins of the Atouguia Castle as well as the Forte da Praia da Consolação. The São Leonardo Church and the Atouguia da Baleia Church are the places where you would be able to admire some prime examples of the medieval history this area offers. The Atouguia da Baleia Cruise, the Nossa Senhora da Conceição Church and the Pelourinho de Atouguia da Baleia are also places you should not skip a visit. All the above monuments are now considered a cultural Heritage.
In the town of Peniche, only 5 minutes from the picturesque village of Atouguia da Baleia, at the water's edge on the south side, stands the 16th-century Fortaleza. Used as a prison during the repressive Salazar regime, it now contains a museum of local archaeology and crafts, incorporating former cells, solitary chambers and the visitors' grilles.
In Largo 5 de Outubro, the Church of the Misericórdia has 17th-century painted ceiling panels depicting the life of Jesus Christ and patterned “azulejo” glazed tiles from the same period.
3-km walk eastwards lies the breezy Cabo Carvoeiro and the Chapel of Our Lady of Remédios, which contains 18th-century blue and white “azulejo” glazed tiles. Laced with grottoes and coves, the Berlenga Islands are an hour's journey by boat from Peniche. Berlenga Grande, the largest of the group, is a nature reserve with nesting sites for seabirds. It also has a 17th-century fort. If you feel that the above is not enough you can also visit several other churches and museums in and around the Peniche and Atouguia da Baleia area.
