Mafra

A land of experiences and emotions, from the blue of its waves to its natural greenery, from its vast historical and natural heritage to its flavors and traditions.
The National Palace of Mafra, with its 1200 rooms, is the most important Baroque monument in Portugal, built by King João V, and includes a royal palace, a basilica, a convent, a library, six organs, and two carillons with 98 bells (one of the largest historical carillons in the world).
Also noteworthy is the Tapada Nacional de Mafra, created in 1747 as a leisure and hunting park for King João V and his court, which is the largest walled area in Portugal and is home to a wide variety of fauna and flora in its 819 hectares.
Along 11 km of rocky coastline formed by rocky cliffs, the municipality's 13 beaches, most of which are located in the fishing village of Ericeira (a world surfing reserve), are worth highlighting.
