Cais Palafítico is a wodden pier in Carrasqueira, made with irregular fragile  wodden stakes for the fishing boats that dock there. 
It's one of the most visited places in the region, since this masterpiece of popular architecture, was built in the 50s and 60s and it's unique in Europe. 
Not only is it great for tourism and photography, the pier is still used by fisherman even in the low tides.
