Carrasqueira 1

Cais Palafitico da Carrasqueira
Obra-prima da arquitectura popular, o cais palafitico da Carrasqueira, único da Europa, é construído de estacas de madeira irregulares, aparentemente frágeis, das décadas de 1950 e 1960, que servem de embarcadouro aos barcos de pesca que ali acostam. Ora estão enterradas no lodo, ora na água, segundo as marés.
Integrada na reserva natural do Estuário do Sado, a aldeia ribeirinha conserva uma impressionante rede de estacaria que se estende centenas de metros pelos esteiros lamacentos do rio Sado.
Ponto de atracção turística, é um dos locais mais visitados no concelho, o cais continua, no entanto, a cumprir a missão para que foi construído: permitir o acesso dos pescadores aos barcos, mesmo durante a baixa-mar.
Ao longo dos diversos cais erguem-se pequenas casas construídas em madeira, que servem de arrecadações.

Carrasqueira’s Palafitte Dock
A masterpiece of the popular architecture, the Carrasqueira’s Palafitte dock, unique in Europe, is built out of irregular timber stakes, apparently frail, from the 1950’s and 1960’s decades, which serve as pier to the fishing boats that anchor there. The stakes are either buried in mud, or water, according to the tides.
Integrated in the Sado’s Estuary Natural Reserve, the riverside village contains hundreds of meters of piling through the muddy sea inlets of the river Sado.
Touristic attraction site, it is one of the most visited places in the county; the dock goes on, nevertheless, accomplishing the mission for which it was built: To allow to the fishermen boat access, even during the low tide.
Along the several moles small timber houses rise. They are used as storerooms.
