typical village of José Franco
A mini village representing the local traditions. There is entertainment for kids. A nice bread with smoked meat. And porttery.
This miniature reconstruction of a village on the outskirts of Lisbon can be found on the road linking Mafra to Ericeira.
Very nice typical vilage, just 5 km from Ericeira. Try the bread with choriço if you go there. its delicious!
How did the portuguese live in the 19th century? You can discover it at this tipical viilage where there is a mill, barber shop, a school... Everything was made by José Franco a traditional potter man.
“The only tapada (hunting grounds) open to the public, with 1187 hectares of woods, it has several species of animals. The Garden of Cerco surrounds the building (with an area of 8 ha) and functions as a transition element between the monument and the Tapada of Mafra. A special note goes to the central tank, the "nora" and the small lakes.”
“The activities of Tapada Nacional de Mafra are very diversified and change according to the time of year, so it's very important that you plan your visits to enjoy all our services.”
“Nice pastry in the Ericeira Centre. Always crowded so be patient. The "queques" are a highlight and worth a visit.”
