Sao Martinho Do Porto
At a distance of just 3km from the Sozo Arts Retreat, lies the town of Sao Martinho do Porto. The town retains the charm of old houses and cobbled streets, whilst having undergone modest modernisation. The town is situated in an amazing sweeping bay, sheltered from the Atlantic waves by a narrow break in the cliffs. The water is shallow, calm and safe for bathing and swimming. Sao Martinho has many pleasant cafes and restaurant s to suit most budgets. The town has a daily market and attractive ‘boutique’ shops. It’s a popular destination for Lisbonites, and remains peaceful and quiet outside of August.
