Throughout the year, the rush and busy schedules lead us into such a stressful routine that we can't wait and rest for a few days. Only then do we think of the places where we can hear the noise of the ocean waves, watch the sun set in the trees or even surf to break free.
Surely you can enjoy all these beauties in Nazareth, a village in Portugal with only 10,000 inhabitants, which is privileged to have a solid cultural heritage and unique natural landscapes.
This is a historic area in the center of the country, where the blue of the sea and the green of the trees blend with the colors of the city and different cultural attractions, such as the Nazare Lighthouse, São Miguel Arcanjo Fort and Nossa Senhora Church. Lady of Nazareth
But if there is one main reason for traveling to Nazareth, this is undoubtedly the set of beaches that make up its vast coastline.
Nazareth is a village where the sea is everything - or, more specifically, the Atlantic Ocean is everything. Sometimes busy, sometimes calm, it is ideal for those who want to enjoy some of the best beaches in Europe.
Natural landscapes, white sand and waves, coast-facing pines and a sunset that in Western Europe are unique. Immerse yourself in the magic of this village where you can breathe the fresh air and wake up to the sound of seagulls.
In Nazaré you will find beaches of all kinds. But it will be as you walk along Praia do Norte that you will see its biggest attraction: the huge, remarkable waves that are triggered by the Nazaré Canyon, an undersea canyon. In fact, Guinness World Records chose North Beach as the place with the largest waves in the world.
A delightful place, next to several exotic beauty villages, with beaches and forests where adults and little ones sit in the old days, when everything seemed easier and the sound of the sea was enough.
In addition to the beaches and the village of Nazaré itself, there are many attractions and experiences to live in this western region, where cities like Alcobaça, Fatima, Leiria, Óbidos or Batalha form the perfect path.
Given that Nazaré is just a 50-minute drive from Leiria, there is nothing better than a visit to this city, where a huge castle stands out in the middle of the horizon. Not to mention the exquisite Alcobaça monastery and its views of the cloister and the rest of the city, drawn by the Baçca and Alcoa rivers, where you can also enjoy the open-air markets.
When you finish the tour of the monastery, you can always go to Batalha or the green tower castle of Porto de Mós, which seems to come out of a story. In this same city, adults and children can visit the Caves of Mira, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal, with a world of groundwater and spectacular karst formations. In addition, just outside the city you will find an ideal water park for the little ones to have fun. From this point, it is possible to continue to Fatima, one of the great Portuguese religious centers and around the world.
But if there is a place to discover near Nazareth, this is undoubtedly the village of Óbidos, one of Portugal's great heritage sites. This village is an ancient fortified city where its cobbled streets, reddish roofs and medieval markets make it a true journey through time.
Take the children to the top of Óbidos Castle and let them enjoy the views and feel that they have Portugal all within easy reach.
