About this spot
The Cais Palafítico da Carrasqueira (Carrasqueira Palafitic Pier) is one of the most visited places in the county. This masterpiece of popular architecture, was built in the 50s and 60s, is unique in Europe and is built on irregular, apparently fragile wooden poles, which serve as a dock for the fishing boats that dock there. As a tourist attraction, the pier continues to fulfill the mission it was built for: allowing fishermen access to boats, even during low tide.
