... the Light and Color

A masterpiece of popular architecture, the Carrasqueira pier is unique in Europe, built on seemingly fragile irregular wooden stakes of the 1950s and 1960s, which serve as mooring for the fishing boats that lay there, sometimes buried in the mud or in the water, according to the tides.

Despite the degradation, the dock continues to fulfill the mission for which it was built: allow access to boats of fishermen, even during the low seas.

Integrated into the nature reserve of the Sado Estuary, the riverside village preserves an impressive network of staking that stretches hundreds of meters along the muddy estuaries of the river Sado.

A tourist attraction point, it is one of the most visited places in the municipality of Alcácer do Sal and one of the most famous spot for landscape photographers in Portugal.
