Inhabited since ancient times, it was in the Lourinhã region that the most important evidence of the presence of dinosaurs in Portugal was discovered - the fossilised eggs and respective embryos, which are displayed in the Municipal Museum.

On the hill where the Moors built a fort, later rebuilt by the Christians, it is worth visiting the Church of Santa Maria do Castelo (St Mary of the Castle), a fine example of 14th century Gothic style. This is one of the best points from which to admire the diversity of the region.

Besides the fertile valleys and highly productive farmland, with large vineyards and orchards, there are also excellent beaches, some almost inaccessible and practically deserted, and others very crowded and cosmopolitan.
