Don´t do just glamping in Alcobaça !

Glamping in Alcobaça and the city of Alcobaça are to be discovered. A famous saying is “if you visit Alcobaça, you always will visit again“. Very close you will find also a small holiday eco resort where you can experience glamping as it is meant to be. Why do we say this?

We do not want mainstream glamping. You?

Glamping comes from the words “glamourous camping“. It started in the days that you needed to take everything with you to camp. To prevent that, we got familiar with the first “equipped tents” and “mobile homes”. In France whole campsite were redeveloped with hundreds of “mobile homes”. In Croatia I remember to have booked an equipped tent where the tents were place 0.5 meter from each other. No privacy outside and inside you could hear everything from the neighbours…….

We already do see this happening in Portugal. Glamping gets mainstream. This means “market” and a lot of campings and holiday resorts already have developed a part of their plot for “glamping” accommodations. Unfortunately they start to look a like. Economy of scale is resulting in sites with quickly 20 or more similar tents, yurts, lodges or air bubbles. Privacy is often sacrificed but the looks are nice. One even more luxurious than the other and prices are going up to compete or overclass the 5 star hotels…..

So be different – Welcome at Eco Glamping in Alcobaça

Conventual Pastries – Cidade dos Doces Conventueis

Holiday Portugal_traditional sweets from alcobaça

The best pastry shops of Alcobaça, awarded countless times, offer throughout the year the result of research and collection of forgotten recipes adapted to the present day.

These are true wonders, created through 1001 experiences, long practice and dedication, patience and devotion; just like the liqueurs that throughout the centuries have been surrounded by secrecy are temptations available to all who visit Alcobaça.

The richness of Portuguese confectionery has much of its origins in Portuguese convents and monasteries. The egg whites used to make communion wafers or to iron habits left behind the yolks, which, so as not to be wasted, led nuns and friars to perfect ancestral and familiar recipes, creating or recreating sweets rich in sugar, yolks and fruit (dried or seasonal).

Fabrics – Chita de Alcobaça

Holiday Portugal_chita de alcobaça

The so-called Chita de Alcobaça is characterised by the use of very colourful stereotyped patterns of Indo-European influence, illustrated with wide stripes of varied decoration where birds, exotic birds, animals, flowers, fruits, human figures, cornucopias, amphorae, nests and tropical fruits appear. Each pattern has its own name, (Persian; Viana; Belmonte; etc.), existing in different versions depending on the colour of the bar.

This tradition of the Alcobaça printed fabric is still going on today. It gains new life in the hands of excellent artisans and designers who create new applications for this characteristic national product.

Crockery – Loiça de Alcobaça

You can get lost in the traces of pottery practice in the Alcobaça region, which is probably related to the large clay deposits in the region as well as to the presence of the Cistercian monks who also marked the art of working the clay. The Alcobaça ceramic ware, commonly known from north to south of the country as Loiça de Alcobaça, is easily identified through its yellow, green, violet and red tones over a predominant blue background. The Alcobaça’s Crockery – from the fruit bowl to the vase, from the ornamental plate to the coat rack – had a good acceptance, entering in the most diverse houses, either in Europe or America.
