Visiting Benedita


To see Visiting Benedita – mainly for business

Benedita was, in several years of the second half of last century, the most fastly growing village in the world.

That stopped near the end of the century, and Benedita stopped, somewhere between a small city and a big village, with prosperous industry mixed with fading projects, but always with a great vitality.

It is not a touristy destination, but a place where you may go to a convenient business, or to join the lively youth

Visiting Benedita – Just kidding

​The wonders of Benedita

There is a very old rivalry between Benedita and Turquel. Until the decade of 1960, Benedita was a poor village, even smaller than Turquel. Then, with the support of a wise priest, Benedita started growing, becoming for several years, the fastest growing place in Europe.

Turquel stood behind, and rivalry gave place to some envy. Times have changed, Benedita slowed down, Turquel got some development too, and now both places tend to live together, sharing space and opportunities.

However… rivalry makes part of cultural heritage!​

​So, if you don’t mind, as a good citizen of Turquel, I’m pleased to show you in the top of this text the most beautiful picture of Benedita.

The other beauties

I was kidding!

​Benedita has several wonderful things: a road to Turquel is the top of them, but you may go further, climb the mountain of Candeeiros, and from the top you will have nice views over Turquel, with Alcobaça, Nazaré and the sea in background.

PS – The fun will be confined to this intro. I promise that I will treat Benedita as seriously as every other place in all that I will write from now.

Visiting Benedita – Church

The church

The most noticeable area of Benedita is the church and the surrounding buildings.

​All of them modern and common, they are the signs of the great progress in the recent decades.

NIghtlife Bars


​ Night in Benedita​

Benedita has several bars.

As a hub of the regional education system, hundreds of students (and other) gather in weekends in and around bars, in a lively night.

The top of the nightly events happens during Carnival – Monday night, thousands fill all the streets in the centre of town to a parade, and the amusement continues all night long
