The museum contributes to the lively cultural scene of the community and is located in the old rice mill.

Rice production dates back to 1952, when the estate first began to process this commodity.

Fishing

It is common knowledge that long before the Romans inhabited this part of the world, that the local population had fished the estuary and Atlantic Ocean for centuries.

This provided an array of fresh and salt water seafood and fish

Whether you are an active angler or make your living from the surrounding waters, the determination, patience and skill is still today what it has always been.

Not a day passes without seeing either a fishing vessel or a lone individual casting their nets akin to times of Jesus Christ

These courageous men, risk their lives on a daily basis and for centuries have been the great providers of the delights that the ocean and estuary have served.

As you travel the beaches on either side of the peninsula you will also see a number of people fishing from the shore.

Many a lunch and dinner are still being caught this way today.
