I liked the story of this church and the black Madonna's statue that they have here. This statue were brought here from Nazareth- the hometown of Jesus, gave the name to this lovely town.

A church perched up on the top of the cliff, beautiful in its simplicity. Inside a fresque of azulejos sits beside images of Christ and gold ornements. A striking contrast that at first seems out of place, but speaks of the Portuguese identity and Catholocisme.

This is a very nice and very old church build in the original fishermen village up in the cliff over the beach. It is one of the few buildings surviving the modernization and commercialization of the village. The church is on a lovely square, with a spectacular view. The inside is very ornate baroque but relatively primitive and there is... More

If you are in Nazaré and are interested in culture besides nature than the church is worth to visit. From the inside it's much more beautiful as from the outside. Like in each Catholic Church you will see the richness of the Catholics.

This marvelous church is in the barroque style, with some motifs in golden leaf. The architecture is superb, the entrance is free. It holds the image of our lady of Nazaré. The story tells the image was done the hands of Saint Joseph himself. Worth a visit to contemplate the religious art, one of the finest of Portugal.

When you will visit the church you must go upstairs to visit the figure of Nostra Segnora very closely from there you will have a great view on the church and you will see amazing corridors with tiles. Really worth to see.
