Nazaré is a city in Portugal.
From Lisbon. Take the Rede expressos-bus from busstation at Av. Duque de Avila (nearest metro Saldanha). Aprox. 2 h.´s to the busstationcenter in the center of Nazaré. Prices would be around 8-9 Euros (-08). This is the fastest line. Trains runs from the orientestation. You have to change and accept lots of stops en route. Arrival will be in Valado dos Frades (aprox. 5 km. from Nazaré).There´s a local bus going to Nazaré and - normally - it would be possible to get a taxi from the station (normally with a fixed fare).
The streets, the beach. O Sitio with a wonderfull view of the beach (there is a funiculaire). Going out to the Farol and watch the Atlantic Ocean crash against the cliffs. The Praia do Norte - A vast expanse of beach. Dangerous swimming.
There are lots and lots of small cheap restaurants, where they are grilling fish (sardines etc...), chickens outside. Normally it pays off to frequent the smaller streets. On the waterfront and major squares you will find it much more expensive. Lots of nice cafés on the Praca Sousa Oliveira. Not cheap but with a good view of the bustling life.
