Map of Peniche in Portugal
Before showing you the map of Peniche in Portugal, we think it is appropriate to show you the map of the entire Portuguese nation and give you the main details about it.
Portugal is a Southern European country located on the Iberian Peninsula, on the border with Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has greatly influenced its culture: cod and grilled sardines are national dishes, the beaches of the Algarve welcome many visitors and much of the country’s architecture dates back to the period between the 16th and 19th centuries, when Portugal was a powerful maritime empire. Portugal’s main cities are:
- Lisbona – capitol city of the country
Peniche, on the other hand, is a Portuguese municipality of 27,315 inhabitants belonging to the district of Leira and located about 1 hour away from Lisbon. Thanks to its natural conformation and the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, it has become a popular tourist destination for surfers.
