Palheiros da Praia da Tocha Paulo Fajardo, Paulo Delgado Curtas Documentário 0:17:30 A Praia da Tocha situa-se entre uma imensa extensão de dunas e a sua formação data do inicio do século XIX. Foi a pesca de arrasto para terra, conhecida por Arte Xávega, que permitiu que os pescadores se fixassem junto à costa. Os barcos sujeitam-se a manobras difíceis e violentas, tanto à largada como à chegada. Os Palheiros foram-se erguendo, posicionando-se estrategicamente em função da vida da pesca. Uns no areal, outros nas zonas mais elevadas da duna, sobranceiros ao mar. Bastante rudimentares, os primeiros palheiros cumpriam a sua função durante o período da safra, de abril a outubro. Estas construções tradicionais são bem elucidativas da humanização da paisagem. Assentes em estacaria, para que as areias tocadas pelos ventos fortes passassem por baixo delas sem as soterrar. Nas três últimas décadas, a praia sofreu um desenvolvimento significativo, no Verão, o areal anima-se e transforma-se num grande palco onde coabitam pescadores e turistas. Portugal
