On our way to the 5th VT Euromeet in Cascais, we also visited Nazare for a few days just before we headed off to Lisbon.
Nazare has about 15.000 inhabitants and is located on Portugal's west coast halfway between Coimbra and Lisbon. With its long sandy beach Nazare has become a popular seaside resort, but still it has kept a bit of the charm of a traditional Portuguese fishing village.
Among the highlights is a visit of Nazare's clifftop district of Sitio from where magnificient views of the town and the beach can be enjoyed. It is also home to the Baroque Sanctuary of Our Lady of Nazare, whose history dates back to the 14th century.
“The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach”
--- Henry Beston ---
- Pros:Quaint historic city centre; panoramic views from Sitio.
- Cons:Crowded with tourists in the summer.
- In a nutshell:Portugal's quaint and booming seaside resort.
Nazare has a small Tourist Information Office (Posto de Tourismo), which provides a few useful free brochures and maps... more travel advice
Nazare has a large covered Municipal Market (Mercado Municipal), which is well worth a visit, even if you are not... more travel advice
