This pool is spectacular. It is actually a set of pools. THey are spectacularly designed around the natural rock setting of this beach and fit into the landscape in a wonderful way. Gorgeous and wonderful and not expensive.

It is obvious for the title that I am an architect, but I want to seduce to get to know and respect the place by other non-architect people: Just think about bathing into this part of the ocean without -so much- danger and kind of...More

I've found our success rate of finding places we really like is very hit & miss thus far in Portugal. Pleased to say we were delighted here. Hope we make it back during our stay.

The pools are now open for the season. Personally, I wouldn't bother. These are sea water, tidal swimming pools on a reasonably exposed part of the Atlantic coastline. Thus you need a very hot day to appreciate them. There are two pools in typical "municipal"...More

Two tourist offices had recommended to me this place both stating that even if it was closed, it was worthwhile seeing from an architectural point of view. When I finally found the pool I was happy to see that there was a sign stating "Bar...More

Hello. This pool is empty during winter and it's really not interesting to see it as it is but the area is still very beautiful. There is another building designed by Siza (casa de chá) and the lighthouse!
