Lodging

by liqdstar

Can anyone recommend a good and safe place to stay in Nazare? I read hte other post about finding a place when you arrive, but I am going in August and am concerned that finding a place might be hard at that time.
Thanks

Hi,

I think the thing with Nazaré is that there are few hotels and the majority of people stay in private houses that locals rent. At least, that's my idea on it.

That's probably why you can't seem to find accomodation there through the internet. There are some private houses with contact but the only ones I found are for "country tourism", kind of manor houses, which means they are a bit more expensive and located a bit away from the seaside.

Do you consider this trip a beach only trip or sightseeing?

Cheers,
Pedro

beach only. is there sightseeing there?+

RE: RE: Lodging

Yes, there is sightseeing, but not specifically in Nazaré but around that area.

You'd have to take a car to stroll around.

For a list of hotels in Nazaré you can try this web from the town council:
http://www.cm-nazare.pt/hoteis.htm

The first 3 are hotels, the second list is for hostels and the last 3 entries are a "manour house"/"farm" and 2 camping sites.

I found another website with hotels and pointing to booking facilities for some of the hotels you can find in Nazaré.

Do you want to go into an hotel or prefer a private house?

Cheers,
pL

Regarding sightseeing, there are a couple of monuments and cities around Nazaré. I would at least take a day off to visit "Batalha"'s Monastery. It is impressive and very caractheristic of the portuguese old architecture.

Good luck on the hotels.

As far as I know, accomodation places rarely get full outside Lisbon. In Nazare, local women dressed in tipical fisher(woman) costumes stand on the street and try to persuade outsiders to rent holiday rooms. You will find them on the street.

About safety, only you, i.e. your state of mind, will give you a perception about safety.

Beach is better in the Algarve. Sightseing (also combined with beach) is better by Nazare and around.

Nazaré in August is always overcrowded. If your intention is to swim then be aware that the water in the west coast is very cold (usually 16º to 18º in August). The southern coast (Algarve) is usually above 20º then. If you go to Nazaré you must take some time to travel around - Batalha is a must see, but also Alcobaça and Obidos. I live 20 kms far from Nazaré and wrote some tips that may be useful in all the mentioned places and also Caldas da Rainha, Sao Martinho do Porto, Leiria and more, all less than 30 kms distant from Nazare. The site that was given by pel is indeed the best that i know about lodging in Nazare. If you need local help just ask for it.

Peixeira

by solopes

The traditional social organization of Nazaré reserves to women a fundamental role: while the men are at the sea, women rule life, taking care not only of the house - traditional women's role - but also of business.

The "peixeira" (fishing seeller) became not only a profession, but a status. And it's really funny to appreciate the peixeira's independence and strenght in everything, even in games.

Things are fading, but when holidays provide free time, the hapinesss of their meeting with the roots is a special show. Celestino Graça was a great man from Santarém. He launched a great event, that keeps celebrating his memory many years after his death - The National Agriculture Exhibition.
One of the highlights (for those who know nothing about agriculture as me) was the International Folklore Festival, gathering groups from all the world, sometimes with great disputes with the dictatorship controls. I had the opportunity to cooperate with his organization, and to know him from short distance.

One day, we were in Caldas da Rainha in a performance with some groups that we took there from Santarém, when the director of Nazaré's best group - Tamar - also performing, anounced the premiere of Nazaré's 9th dance.

(A parenthesis to explain that Nazaré has a very interesting folklore, absolutely different from any other in Portugal, but composed by only 8 dances - 7 "viras" and a "corridinho", what stops local groups from performing more than 15 minutes).

The dance started, and immediately, from the audience, a voice sounded, loud and clearly:

"Stop... no... this is outrageous... no... no... out!"

It was Mr Graça.

I approached him, trying to calm him down, and asking him what happened.

Still furious, he pointed the dancers and continued:

"Don't you see? He putted the women dancing backwards! This is an outrage! The woman of Nazaré is the only in Portugal that always dances forward. The woman of Nazaré never recedes before man! She puts the fish upon her head and runs to Alcobaça, Valado, Caldas da Rainha, anywhere, to sell it. "Peixeira's life is lived forward, the dance always respected it, and that must preserved."

Many years later I saw Tamar performing, curious to see if they kept that 9th dance or not.

Well... they did! But the women danced forward. Mr Afonso (the director) also respected Mr Graça, and also learned with him!

Street Crab Sellers

by MarioPortugal

While wandering in Nazaré one will notice the typical street Crab sellers, generally local ladies dressed with the original local costumes. (Those costumes are still nowadays their everyday way of dressing).

Crabs are already cooked and ready to be eaten.
Prices (for each Crab):
» 2 euro for the Bigger ones.
» 1.5 euro for the mid-size ones.
» 1 euro for the smaller ones.

New Look

by solopes

For many, many years I didn't go up to Pederneira. When I did recently, I was surprised by the excellent recovering work that has been done there. Once the main population centre of Nazaré, this quarter keeps all the ambiance of the past, and it is a good walking trip to combine with the use of the beach.

OUR LADY OF NAZARE'

by LoriPori

Located on the hilltop overlooking the village of Nazare', OUR LADY OF NAZARE' or SANTUARIO DE NOSSA SENHORA DA NAZARE', was founded in the 14th century. The first thing you notice are the semi circular steps which lead to a Barocque Portal.
When you walk in, you immediately are in awe of its beauty - so much gold. The Apse is absolutely stunning.
The blue tiled Azulejos were created by Willem Van Der Kloet.
We were allowed to climb up to the loft behind the altar.
