Praia da Luz ("Beach of Light") was originally just a small fishing village, with a history going back to the times of the Romans, when fish salting was carried out along the seafront. The arrival of tourism in the second half of the 20th century has resulted in some development of the town, though it has mostly not been spoilt by it.
