    Nazaré is a colorful fishing village in central Portugal. Located almost 80mi north of Lisbon. With a beautiful sandy beach and the rhythm of the pounding waves, Nazaré is a perfect place for undisturbed walks along the shore, surfing, tanning and, of course, fishing.

    The town gets its name after a statue of the Virgin Mary, which was brought from Nazareth by a monk in the 4th century. Nazare has three districts: the beach; Sitio, high above the main town and Pederneira. So, it has some interesting site-seeing spots. On the town square, the 17th century Nossa Senhora da Nazaré Church is located and the statue of Our Lady of Nazareth rests there. Another attraction is on Rua Sousa Lobo and its the Casa Museo do Pescador or a fisherman’s house museum. This traditional cottage is a typical home of a fisherman and his family.

    The most popular things to do in Nazaré is to ride the funicular to Sitio. It is located 360 feet above the main town and offers panoramic views. Sitio has a chapel Capela da Memoria.

    Nazaré has a lot of cafés and restaurants along the seaside. Obviously, most commonly served dishes consist of seafood and variety of locally caught fish. Colorful fishing boats are seen on the sand, along with busy fisherman. They still wear the traditional costumes, with check shirts and trousers. Local women are wearing colorful dresses, with petticoats underneath as well.

    Unlike the other Portuguese towns, Nazaré does not have a monumental architecture or historic sites. However, the slow pace and genuine traditional lifestyle, make this charming town a great place to visit.

The town was founded in the 15th Century by Queen Leonor, the wife of King Dom JoãoII, who established a church and a hospital at the thermal springs. Queen Leonor had had a wound that had not healed, but it was cured after she spent time in the springs.
    The Hospital Termal Rainha D. Leonor is still in operation and is considered to be the oldest operating thermal hospital in the world but, these days, Caldas da Rainha is more famous for its iconic pottery.
    The Faianças Artísticas Bordallo Pinheiro produces all kinds of pottery but particularly ceramic fruits and vegetables (particularly cabbages) and black swallows. Since the 19th Century, it’s also known for producing ceramic penises – a tradition that nobody is quite sure of the origins, but that has become an important part of the town’s identity.
