O Sitio, Nazare
(4.7/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Resting atop a seaside cliff, O Sitio presents a collection of religious buildings and is a hugely popular site for pilgrims from around the globe. Hitch a ride on the funicular, or hike your way up to the summit, where you'll find medieval fortifications, 17th-century churches, and modern shrines. Wander the courtyards and plazas surrounded by ornate structures, basilicas, and statues. Feel free to stop in and pay your respects at one of the many chapels. Be sure to walk over to the edge of the rocky outcropping, which sits 110 m (361 ft) above the ocean for a view of the sea and coastline. Put O Sitio on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Nazare itinerary builder.

  • The site, in Nazareth, is a beautiful place. And the walls of the Fort, has a privileged view over the Atlantic Ocean, on the North Beach and the beach of Nazaré. The Largo is situated the Church of Nossa senhora da Nazaré and the chapel of Memories, an entire architectural ensemble of great beauty. In addition to the beauty and charm of the ' varinas ' dressed in the typical costume of Nazareth, with the 7 skirts, embroidered skirts over each other, selling dried fruits and other products some Taco stands. Trade with varied handicrafts, such as pottery, embroidery, knitting, etc. All this set gives the Place a special charm and beauty.
