Located by the shore, in the Tróia peninsula, this village dates back to at least 5000 years ago. The vestiges of shells and ceramics of the neolithic show precisely that. Very rich in cultural terms (as one can see in the boats miniatures, the wooden shacks and the embroideries) irs 600 or so inhabitants are devoted mainly to farming, fishing and preparing the rice. In fact, one cannot mention Comporta without speaking of the preparation of the rice and of the Comporta Farm (that belongs to the Atlantic Company Ltd). In patromonial terms, a special note to the mother church (18th century) and to the Saint Peter's Chapel. Gastronomically, its main dishes, since it is located by the Sado river's estuary, are the eel stew and the fish noodles.
