SURROUNDINGS / REGION



Characterization of surroundings/region


Ericeira

Ericeira is an ancient village thought to be a place of passage and a settlement for the Phoenicians.

“The village of Ericeira had its first documented charter in 1229, granted by King Ferdinand Frei Rodrigues Monteiro, Master of Cavalry and Military Order of St. Benedict of Aviz”, renewed by King Manuel I in 1513.

“The charters were primarily intended to regulate the local public law, defining and regulating the county’s relationship to the royal power and the landlord of the locality” (…) “The customs of the villages were not simply important enough to be introduced in their charters (…) but made the law in this area. The customs provided the true strength of the written laws. ”

At other times, Ericeira was largely a place for a population of seafarers, known as the Jagoz. This was a geographically defined ethnic group, distinct from the other inhabitants of the Saloia region, which formed across many centuries.

Ericeira’s heyday came in the 19th century, when it became the busiest port and customs in Extremadura, responsible for supplying most of the province. As the site of the departure of the Portuguese royal family as they left for exile, an event which marked the end of the national monarchy, Ericeira is one of the most dramatic sites in the Mafra area. Its beaches and fishing grounds, alongside its heritage and gastronomy, with outstanding fish and seafood, are now amongst the biggest attractions of this seaside town.

Legend has it that the meaning of the name, Ericeira, or “terra de ouriços”, comes from the many sea urchins (ouriços-do-mar in Portuguese) that abounded on its beaches. However, recent research suggests that hedgehogs (ouriços caixeiros) might provide the inspiration for the village’s name. The discovery of an ancient coat of arms from the village, now in the Archive-Museum of Mercy, confirmed this idea, showing an animal that is in fact, a hedgehog, a species that evokes the Phoenician goddess, Astarte.


Lisbon

According to legend, Lisbon was founded by Ulysses. The city’s name derives from the word, “Olissipo”, which, in turn, has its origins in the Phoenician words “Allis Ubbo”, meaning “enchanting port”.

It is generally thought that Lisbon was actually founded by the Phoenicians. It was then built in the Moorish style, evident in the strong Arabic influences seen across the city. Lisbon was in fact controlled by the Moors for 450 years, until it was reconquered by the Christians in the twelfth century, to become the capital of Portugal only in the mid-thirteenth century.

With the start of the Age of Discoveries, Lisbon developed, gaining in wealth to become an important center for trade in jewellery and spices. But the greatest step forward driving Portuguese expansion came in 1498, when Vasco da Gama discovered the sea route to India. The Golden Age of the city commenced, characterized by the Manueline architectural style, full of decorative maritime motifs and named after the king at the time, Manuel I. During the following centuries, Lisbon grew, maturing naturally. Although the city center was almost completely destroyed by an earthquake in 1755, the Marquis of Pombal directed its reconstruction to create the Baixa district, a commercial area that continues to retain many of its original traces and elegance until today.

Lisbon is an historic capital, a pot pourri with unique character and charm where 800 years of diverse cultural influences mingle with modern trends and lifestyles to create truly spectacular contrasts.

With all these varied, enticing and enchanting reasons, Lisbon welcomes you!
