Our Wakes: 2015

Nazaré: (1-4 May 2015)
This little harbor is located 100 km north of Lisbon. Nazaré has much to offer as it is a historical  site, a seaside resort and a worldwide known spot  for surfing as the biggest ever surfed wave in  the world has been in Nazaré with a wave estimated to be 26,6 meters high. This village is  also a  well-known fishing place and the city preserves the history of the fishing community by having on  the beach some ancient boats and women who dry there fish for the tourist. Nazaré is a city  separated in two with the highest part situated 100 meter high on the cliffs and connected to the  lower part by a funicular. On the higher part you have several historical buildings such as a fort, a  church and of course a unique view on the ocean and the lower part of the city. The lower part of  the city is essentially a seaside place but if you walk inside the town you will walk in small streets  were people have a little barbecue on the street as well as hanging their clothes to dry.
