Nazare Guide

Nazare

The charming old fishing village of Nazare features fishermen in brightly coloured traditional dress and long stretches of sandy beach, considered by many to be the best in the country. Named for a statue of the Virgin Mary from Nazareth in the mid-4th century, the city's protector is said to have miraculously saved the life of a 12th century knight.

Divided into three sections connected by a funicular railway, visitors to Nazare can soak up the sun in A Praia (the beach area), take the funicular up to Pederneira, or admire the panoramic views from the old town hilltop of O Sítio.

A tiny 12th century chapel commemorating the Virgin's miraculous intervention is situated next to the Nossa Senhora de Nazare cathedral in Sitio, with a hoof print from the knight's horse engraved in stone in the crypt below.

A popular spot with pilgrims and holiday makers, Nazare's crowded beaches ooze local flavour and timeless appeal. Along the waterfront, brightly coloured fishing boats sway gently on Atlantic waves, still tended by locals in traditional dress. The Casa Museu do Pescador (fishing museum), housed in a traditional fisherman's cottage, honours the town's age old culture with authentic displays.

Strolling past the cafés and craft shops of the avenida Marginal is an ideal way to spend a morning before sitting down to a glass of port and a bowl of the local favourite, caldeirada à nazarena (fish stew). Other local specialities of fish and gambas (shrimp) can be found anywhere along the beach or boulevard.

Excursions along the coastal road lead to several old world villages steeped in history, best explored with a hire car, which can be booked online in advance. Nazare itself can be reached by either bus or train, with the nearest airport in Lisbon just a short drive away.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place.
