nazare.jpg (8327 bytes) Nazare is Portugal's most favorite and picturesque fishing village and has turned into a big resort. 82 miles north of Lisbon. Still a working fishing village in the lower part.


What contrasts Nazare is the fishing fleet to the left and the cruisers and luxury sail boats to the right. nazare2.jpg (13660 bytes)
