Photography: José Guerra


AZUL-Ericeira Mag is about to complete its first year on September 23 and has several symbolic events looming to celebrate the features. The first initiative is a photographic exhibition honouring Europe’s sole World Surfing Reserve which debuts Saturday and remains in the village until September 21.

Around four mupis (exhibitors) will be installed on Rua Dr. Eduardo Burnay, at the heart of Ericeira, with photos illustrating the seven waves protected by the World Surfing Reserve status, which was given to Ericeira by Save the Waves Coalition in October 2011. Those roaming the street in the next few week will have the opportunity to see the aquatic wonders captured by the lens of photographers Ricardo BravoJosé GuerraAndré Carvalho e Luís Bento.

The inauguration is scheduled for 7 p.m on Saturday in that street and everyone is invited to join the celebration, which results in a partnership between AZUL-Ericeira Mag, Mafra’s Municipality, Ericeira’s Burough and JC Decaux.
