Photographer's Note

A view of the beautiful little fishing harbour of Vila Praia de Âncora and the Forte da Lagarteira on the left (constructed around 1668).
The small fishing village becomes a popular beach resort during the summer. Its tiny harbour, protected by a fort, is still used by fishing boats, which are guided through the narrow entrance by specially-erected lights. The village was officially granted vila status in 1924 when it took on its present name.
