Nazaré is a lovely village in the Oeste region of Portugal. It became a world famous surf spot and entered the Guinness Book of Records due to its gigantic waves. It is usually crowded in summer.
Nazaré is named for the biblical city of Nazareth.
Walk through the village, use the tramway to the top of the hill and enjoy the fabulous view over Praia da Nazaré. If you can, watch the international surfing championships on the lighthouse's slope.
