Ruínas Romanas de Tróia

Their most characteristic workshops were salting tanks, where they prepared and preserved fish sauce, amongst others. These Roman ruins are located on a strip of sand between the Sado estuary and the Caldeira lagoon. Visits to these Roman ruins can only be arranged by prior appointment:

Visit bay and boats of Carrasqueira

Comporta and Tróia, Sightseeing

For over two centuries, the port built in traditional wooden stakes, has served as anchorage for local boats. Over the wharf, stand small buildings, which support the fishermen. At his palafitte port, unique in Europe, lies a small fishing village. When the tide is low the steep banks of the muddy Sado river estuary make it impossible to board the boats because the water doesn’t reach dry land. In response to this problem the community built a wooden jetty with multiple arms that zig zag into the marshes forming a large mooring for the boats as well as a sizable gangway that can easily be navigated with nets, tackle and fish. At sunset, when the water mirrors the sky and silence descends upon the river, this unique spot is an unforgettable experience.
