Ericeira is our favourite village/town in Portugal on the Atlantic coast. This town square (praca in Portuguese) is one of the most pleasant public places I have visited. Its modest size and not so attractively built environment is not preventing this praca to offer lot of seats protected from the sun, offering fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean [for people with extraordinary sight even America is visible!] overlooking the main city beach and busy, still fully functional, fishing port.

A very unusual and very graphic sight, from above the beach, is keeping lot of observers at any time of the day. Early in the morning and late afternoon this praça is a bird-watching spot where thousands of swallows are chasing flies and mosquitoes, almost like a scene from the famous Hitchcock film "The Birds".
