2018 EUROPEAN ROAD TRIP – DAY 15

GOING DOWN THE ROAD FROM PORTO TO NAZARÉ

While it was difficult to depart from Porto and put our Douro River adventures behind us, we looked forward to visiting the picturesque seaside village of Nazaré.

On our way to Nazaré, we stopped in Alcobaça

to see the Monastery.

While the facade is weathered, the carving and architecture is remarkable. The interior is majestic.

NAZARE

The town consists of three neighbourhoods: Praia (along the beach), Sítio (an old village, on top of a cliff) and Pederneira (another old village, on a hilltop). Praia and Sítio are linked by the Nazaré Funicular railway. [courtesy of Wikipedia]

QUINTA DAS ROSAS

We stayed at a Quinta on the cliff overlooking the ocean and Praia.

At the end of the long driveway was the bed and breakfast accommodation that would be our home for the next three days…

Complete with free-range chickens and peacocks.
