Peniche
The Essential
Peniche is at once a seaside resort, Portugal's second largest fishing port and a ship-building and fish-canning centre. Rampart ruins and an austere citadel are a reminder of the town's former military role. A public garden planted with palm trees, which is a great place for a stroll, surrounds the tourist office. The city has tried hard, since the 19C, to resurrect its former speciality: bobbin-lace.
