Vila Nova de Milfontes

Milfontes, a village at the estuary of the Mira River, had a troubled history in the face of the dangers of the sea. Most prominently, the case of 1590, when foreign pirates attacked Milfontes, razing the village completely. Facing this situation, the Fort of São Clemente was build between 1599 and 1602. Milfontes is one of the oldest parishes of Odemira, has more than 4,000 inhabitants and has amazing beaches.

We propose the following activities in this area: visit to the Fort of São Clemente, and to the nearby churches. We also suggest a river tour with a stand-up paddle board, a boat or a kayak. We also suggest a visit to the Porto das Barcas, overlooking the bay, for seafood degustation.
