1 DRAFT law No. 536/X ELEVATION of NAVY WAVES, in the MUNICIPALITY of FIGUEIRA DA FOZ, a village the explanatory memorandum, the parish history of Navy waves belonged to the older municipality of Lavos and Paião, extinct in 1853. In 1928 was constituted a civil parish.

The village of Navy waves exists since 1886 and comes from the agglomeration of several existing couples to the East of the main road that runs through the current village, these couples that already existed around 1809.

Part of the territory of the current parish, Northwest of E.N. 109, belonged to Couto de Seiça. The Cistercian monks of the monastery de Seiça have been due the boost given in these lands to settlement and agriculture. Another part of its territory (West of E.N. 109) was part of Couto de Lavos. Advocates that, in times when the coastline was further East than the current, had existed here salt sea, reason that would have justified the choice of place name.

Praia da Leirosa is certainly its oldest settlement, initially characterized as a group of barns (very closely related to those of the grave and the Costa de Lavos). Fishing and fishermen land par excellence started to meet seasonal activity practiced by men from the interior here meijoeiras networks launched. His most significant settlement will have started in 1865 by impulse of José Francisco da Silva 2, son of José da Silva, fisherman drag arts, since 1815, on the coast. Their huts on the beach, covered with straw (or reversing), there are no any traces, even those in wood, replaced, some with ground floor, adobe, and upper floor with wooden balcony facing the front and outer staircase. With the appearance of the brick and concrete, these dark wooden buildings and buffeted by the wind and sea air disappeared and Praia da Leirosa took new setting, losing individuality. The sloop was the fishing boat here adopted by the esgueirões (so called Praia da Leirosa fishermen) able, because of its configuration, the Riptide, dangerous predicament but usual in homeless beaches. The religious festivities of Praia da Leirosa honor, as it should be, who protect the fishermen. Nossa Senhora da Boa Viagem is the local Patron Saint, to whom men and women indulge in prayers asking for blessing and protection for sea travel.

Without doubt the biggest impetus for the development of the Navy waves due to the installation, in 1965, of the pulp industry (Paper) that, with the industry of production of paper (Soporcel, 1984), in the nearby parish of Lavos, come from employing since its installation in this region, a very significant number of local labour.

In addition to the work that is still fishing engage the coastal population, agriculture remains resource for little more than the family livelihood.

Stands out, however, in this scenario the cooks, in place of Woods. With an area of about 100 hectares, holds 12 acres dedicated to the cultivation of different varieties of vines. Of them dominate the Berry (or Poeirinho) in reds, and Maria Garcia (or Fernão Pires) in white. Your cellar, well equipped for the treatment of wine grapes, associates modern technology to tradition, preserving the traditional stone lagares, along with modern stainless steel tanks. The recognized quality of the wines of the Quinta dos Cooks put today the county on national wine route. 3 the legend of the Lady of the waves that, around 1600, a Miller named Fernando, lived a water mill near the stream came from the Pond of the linens and would result in the sea near the site where later founded the village of fishermen of Leirosa. This Miller that periodically carried flour to distant places of Coimbrão, would have found on one of his trips, the image of a Saint. Later a his family have built a chapel where you put the image, giving it the name Lady of the waves.

Wanting people to strengthen this story include that between 1725 and 1770, clashing right ship crewman with a violent storm and risk of shipwreck, promised to erect a chapel to our Lady of the waves if its boat and crew if saving. So going on, was fulfilling the promise and, thus, would have been built the Chapel, in 1744, in honor of Mrs. miracle worker.

The primitive temple would be, however, ignited by the wave of destruction left by the French invasions. The image of the patron saint was removed from the flames and given the store a family who later took up residence in Cascais, having, however, lost the whereabouts.

When he was finally found, returned and restored, the image of the patroness resumed its place in the chapel.

At the end of last decade to 50 going on aim in the Constitution apply to autonomous parish (1958), this chapel was temporarily elevated to the category of Church. However, another main temple if he engineered. The new parish church was born and would be inaugurated in January 1961.

4 Party of the Holy Traditions of the Pretty Chapel of s. Jorge takes the name of the Nice village that began to take shape in the middle of the Moor and dos pinhais by mid-century. XIX. Small, truly popular feature, especially for your front porch adorned main, only opens once a year, on Sunday fat, to receive payment of the promises made to s. Jorge, this popular and affectionately called "Saint of Fighting". "In the old days, you could see oxcarts, donkey carts and animals giving several laps to the Chapel, in the fulfillment of promises of devotees. The sale of the pork reaches the peak of the party, followed by music that starts dancing. It's a party not controlled by the Church, eminently popular root ". (Manuel da Costa Cintrão).
