The site

Nazare is unique. That's why you should be prepared for your visit. Being a beach, it happens that the soul of the city is better felt out of season. Its magnetic attraction to everybody living not to far, makes it difficult to access and park in Sundays and holidays, so if you can, peek another day.
For a several day stay in summer, be prepared for a cold water, excellent and generally safe surf, and crowds everywhere.
For a short visit see my Alcobaca page - travelling around.

View from the Sitio

Either using the funicular, or driving uphill, you must go to the sitio. The sights are awesome, but there's much more to do, from visiting the church, the chapel or the lighthouse, to having a memorable seafood meal. Don't worry about the name of the restaurant. Just stop at the main square and watch locals and their movements, trying not to trust empty restaurants. If you fail, just ask for Luis...

Quartos- Chambres- Rooms- Zimmer

For a night, a weekend or a long stay, Nazaré is a strong attraction. Its unique people, fierce of their traditions, its awesome sights, the freshness of fish, the variety of possible programs in or out the water, call people from inland all year round. In the sunny winter days, cars line all the seashore, with couples hypnotized by the strong bright surf. In spring and autumn, the emptiness of the beach is an opportunity for surfers and anglers. In summer the waves of people oversize the waves of the sea. And all year round Quartos-Chambres-Rooms-Zimmer are the offer of ladies sitting by the roads and streets. Going to Nazaré in free days is as natural as... life!

    Nazaré was in fact one of the highlights of that daytrip & and an excellent lunch,too ! It is a pity that the Nazaré-Lady in her 7 undercoats is hidden in a travelogue ! ;-)

    Hola Avelino: I can see why you love this town of Nazare' so much. It really is quite beautiful. So glad we had the opportunity to visit here. Lunch at Sao Miguel was excellent. Loved the lady in traditional costume also. Thanks again. Lori

    Great pictures of Nazare. I'll be in Lisbon in a few weeks for 4 days and am looking for a good day-trip. Nazare sounds like a nice option.
