has a long and rich History,
successively occupied by people that, in the old times and also nowadays
turned fishing and agriculture into their main economic activities.

shaped and stipulated, from a cultural-social-economic point of view,
the populations that occupied this territory throughout the centuries,
simultaneously allowing the PenicheMunicipality to be the place of important historical events, nationally and internationally.
