The Gaio and Rosário are two quite picturesque villages located alongside the river. They present a strong zeal to tourism, mainly to activities related with the river. Having as a major objective in mind, the enhancement of the riverfront area, including the beautiful river beach, it offers leisure and catering infrastructures.
From the garden, right next to the beach, one can enjoy a marvelous panoramic view over the River Tagus and further the capital. In summer one can also taste the delicious fragateiro’s Stew, which is quite typical at this region. The beach is annually a stage of one original event, the “largadas”, consisting of several bulls set on loose on the streets. By River, near the boatyard, one can find the “Parque das canoas”, which is a very good example of riverfront progress.
