Costa da Caparica
Costa da Caparica is a Portuguese town in the municipality of Almada, the seat of a parish with a 10.18 km² area.

The Costa da Caparica was elevated to the city on December 9, 2004.
The Costa de Caparica belongs to the municipality of Almada and is made up of a coastal cordon of 13 kilometers of beaches of golden sand, offering natural landscapes of great beauty and of great environmental importance, from which stand the woods and the Arriba Fossil of the Coast of Caparica.

This range of beaches provides optimum conditions for practicing activities and water sports for a whole year, with special emphasis on surfing, windsurfing and bodyboarding, attracting visitors, spectators and practitioners of these modalities from the most diverse national and international locations.

The Rua dos Pescadores is the main commercial area of ​​the parish, where a great offer of commerce and restaurants specializing in typical gastronomy of the county is paraded. The spring, Largo 5 de Outubro complements the walk with the market, a commercial gallery and a service area. Already to the west of the Street of the Fishermen we find the "marginal", framed by bars and restaurants of one of the sides, and by the sand of the other.
The typical gastronomy of Almada is particularly linked to the sea and its products for two reasons. First, the obvious proximity to the Atlantic. But second, and not least, are the cultural roots of the inhabitants of Costa de Caparica.
The beginning of the settlement of this coastal strip occurred with the seasonal migrations of fishermen from Ílhavo and the Algarve, who settled there slowly. At the end of the century. In the eighteenth century we can speak of a culture and a gastronomy of its own, based on the resources of the fishery and the agricultural products grown in the gardens of Costa de Caparica.

So today, it is the caldeiradas that are most outstanding at the table in this region, especially those of xaputa, squid, horse mackerel and clams, and that of tramelga, a fine fish with a delicate taste, known by fishermen Costa de Caparica as a "sea chicken." Seafood, mushrooms and mushrooms are on the list of diners' preferences. For meat aficionados there are always some good recipes for pork, chicken or rabbit. follow, you can not miss a jar of very fresh sangria and, to finish the meal, delights in a Claudino (a kind of puff pastry with sweet of eggs) or with a homemade ice cream.
