The Fishermen Beach at Angeiras

Matosinhos
Description
The original name of this place was "Praia da Forcada". Until the early 20 th century it was seasonally attended, in accordance with the "Sea Houses" used by the large farmhouses in the region for maritime activities complementary to agriculture (inshore fishing , gathering seaweed and small crabs as fertilizer, etc...).
Since then this beach began to have a more permanent occupation by the growing fishermen community, which resulted in the designation of "Praia dos Pescadores".
Today, this is an important center of artisanal fishing of species many like pout, bass and octopus. The sardines and the coastal shrimps of Angeiras are considered the best in the country. Initially rowing and sailing boats, nowadays replaced by modern motor boats.
