Peniche is a seaside township in Portugal. It has a large harbor and it is well known as a fishing town. One of the diamonds of Peniche is the baroque Misericordia Church in the main square, where you can admire the fantastic painted ceiling with scenes from the new testament. If you want to see an old prison, then you should visit the impressive 16th century fortress. It had been used as a prison by the secret police of dictator Salazar, where political opponents were jailed.

Peniche has beautiful long windy beaches with really good waves. It offers the ideal conditions for kite-surfing. Set yourself free and join the fast and powerful supertubos waves, one of the best in Europe. That’s why some people call it as the “European pipeline”. The breaks are staring in 3 distinctly different directions making it the best destination for kite-surfing maniacs.
