People from Nazaré are very open to visitors. If one experiments to chat with the locals one will immediately notice how lively they speak back.
Actually, no matter the age local people are, they are usually very open to foreigners.
With those ladies pictured on this tip I've experienced a very dynamic conversation. Showing such bright life while chatting, those ladies gave me a really inspiration for life.
Nazaré has been celebrated for its peculiar inhabitants: fishermen using a traditional collective way of fishing and women dressing 7-layer skirts. Some of them still exist! But the village has been transformed completely and the atmosphere you experience is definitely different from the initial expectations.
Women wear black everyday when they believe that they are old. This tradition is slowly dying out as less women practice this tradition.
