A Walk a Week – Almoçageme

Almoçageme (pronounced: Al-mu-sa-jè-mê) is a beautiful little village on the municipality of Sintra, Portugal.
The name is obviously Arab in origin – the Iberian peninsula is packed with Muslim toponyms that are a legacy of the five hundred years the Moors stayed over.

Well worth spending a day strolling the small streets of this very typical village and enjoy the wine from Colares and a day at Adraga Beach, just some 10kms away.
