A few kilometres to the south is the popular seaside resort of Ericeira. The nearest large town is Mafra, a few kilometres north of Lisbon.

In Mafra is the Convent and Palace of Mafra, built in the 18th century by order of King Joao V, which cost most of the realm's money during its 13 years of building.
The first plans for the Convent were quite modest. Then, the German architect, Ludovice, made many changes and built a convent for 300 priests, a basilica and a royal palace with 666 rooms. Today the library has nearly 38,000 books.
