MORE INFORMATION

Description of the place: Palhota village is one the few remaining traditional fishermen’s villages of the north riverside zone of Lisbon. It belongs to Cartaxo council and it is situated by the Tagus river next to Reguengo village. It is as if Palhota came out from a Neorealist novel of Portuguese writer Alves Redol: a set of tiny wooden house built upon stilts just like the primitive stilt houses, thus protecting the village against the cyclical floods of Portugal’s biggest river. This village can be reached by train and you must exit on Azambuja or Vale de Santarém train stations.
