The Way to Nazare
One of the loveliest towns I visited during a recent trip to Portugal, was the sleepy little beach town of Nazare. Located on the Atlantic about halfway between Lisbon and Porto, this tiny town looks like something from a bygone era. Local women wear traditional Nazare dress including skirts with many petticoats and black headdresses. Just local watching is worth the visit.
