Try Portugal’s traditional seafood dish, Bacalhau, being dried and salted cod and a special dish you must learn to love. Also, make sure to eat at least once in a ‘Marisqueira’, a traditional seafood restaurant you’ll find close to the seaside. For some delicious and traditional Portuguese pastries, take a 15 minute trip from Ericeira to Mafra.
