A typical fishing village, Nazareth is today a busy summer resort that has kept its traditions linked to the sea.

The "Sitio", at the highest point of the village (which can be reached by a panoramic funicular) is without a doubt its best viewpoint. It is also linked to the cult of Our Lady of Nazareth which, according to the legend of the 13th century, The Lady of Nazareth was invoked by the "alcaide D. Fuas Roupinho", while chasing a deer, this way avoiding to be precipitate in the abyss, without possible salvation.

The connection of the people of Nazareth to the sea is well evident in the local handicrafts, in which are the nets, buoys, baskets and traditional dolls dressed in the typical costumes of seven skirts.

Stay at the nearby holiday villa Casa do Lago to visit Nazareth.

The excellence of Portugal was prized and world wide voted as the "2017, 2018 and 2019 Worlds Leading Destination", which reward has never been assigned before to an European Country.
