Maçarico is the name of our business and the family name of its founders; it is also the name of a water bird living in the many lagoons scattered in this coastal region of Portugal and here, at Praia de Mira, is where it all started. Our headquarters is sited near a vast expanse of sand dunes and a village overlooking the mighty blue Atlantic Ocean, inland an abundance of fresh-water lagoons and springs in a fertile environment bursting with bio-diversity.

The Maçarico family has long been linked to Praia de Mira, historically known as traders and merchants sourcing their products from the land and the sea, a tradition which has been carried out through generations. No wonder in the 30’s “Maçarico” was chosen as our trade name.
