The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
Sítio, on the top of the promontory, is a place of religiosity and pilgrimage since the 12th century associated to the legend of Our Lady of Nazaré and to the cult of Mary. Due to the difficult access, Sítio began to develop only in the middle of the 17th century and had a significant growth on the following century. The installation of a Funicular linking “ Praia" to “Sítio”, in 1889, originated a new population increase as well as tourist visits.
The Suberco Belvedere, at 110 meters high, offers the visitor one of the most beautiful sea views of Portugal.
Known for its beautiful beach, one of the most typical of Portugal, Nazaré is famous for its wonderful landscapes, its history and legend of Our Lady of Nazaré, its kind and welcoming people, for its traditions and its gastronomy from the sea.
The beach of Nazaré has a relatively recent origin, until the 17th century the sea occupied most of the area where today stand the houses. The quick geological transformations occurred during that century made the retreat of the sea and the silting up of the area, leaving the lovely bay uncovered.
The first references of fishing in Nazaré date from 1643, however, only in the beginning of the 19th century did the population start to live in the new beach. Until then, the fishermen lived, mainly, in the upper parts – Sítio and Pederneira – since the constant attacks of pirates made the beach a very unsafe place.
Nazaré was first known and demanded as a seaside resort in the middle of the 19th century. Its natural beauty and typical characteristics drew the visitors' attention. Fishing, fish transformation and its sale were the main activities of the population during most of the 20th century. The harsh and dangerous sea life have made many fishermen leave their hometown seeking for better living conditions. The construction of the new Harbour, in the 1980s, has changed and improved the fishermen's living conditions, thus starting a new period on the population's daily life.
In the 1960s, tourism discovered the charm of the beach and the town became known all over the world. Every year, Nazaré receives the visit of thousands of national and international tourists, being today a modern and always lively town. To walk down its narrow streets towards the sea, is to discover a way of living still genuine and peculiar, with surprises at every corner!
Beauty, memories, charisma and traditions make Nazaré the most unforgettable Portuguese beach.
