Ercieira is a small seaside town on Portugal’s Atlantic coast, about 45 minutes from its capital city. Within driving distance of Lisbon and surrounded by small farms and vineyards, Ericeira makes a lovey beach getaway for a few days. I visited in November and again this March, and I am going back in August to get married in a vineyard just down the road from Ericeira! Since I already wrote a post on Ericeira (here) and its a pretty small town, rather than write another here are some of my favorite pictures from beautiful Ericeira on my most recent trip! Happy wanderlust!
