Lourinhã is known as “The land of Dinosaurs”.
Many old and rare fossils have been found there. For example in Lourinhã region were found the oldest fossilized dinosaurs eggs in the world.
In this trip we will first walk and the city and visit a small museum where we will be able to see remnants from the Jurassic.
If you are not much into such museums, you can also replace it by some stop in a café; The museum is small and I am not expecting to spend more than half hour there.
Then we are for a hike until the beach – Praia da Areia Branca – where we are going to stay for about 2 hours.
We will walk for about 8 km.
We are going to Lourinhã by bus – Rede de Expresso.
This is the biggest bus company in Portugal. This company provides (in my opinion) a very good service. It is better to buy the tickets upfront.
It may be also possible to buy them at the bus terminal but then the price will be 3€ higher.
In order to get a cheap return ticket, it is necessary to get the reflex card, as I am planing here:
Then get a return ticket from Lisbon to Praia da Areia Branca, for Jully 29th. Buy this return ticket:
13:30 – 14:45 “Lisbon” =» “Praia da Areia Branca”
20:50 – 22:05 “Praia da Areia Branca” =» “Lisbon”
Lets go to explore Lourinhã and Praia da Areia Branca.
