Great scenic ride
Jul 2021
The funicular is a fast and easy way to get to Sitio from the town of Nazare. The view is great from the funicular and even better from the top.

Very good transport to the viewpoint
Jul 2020
The best way to go from the beach to the beautiful top view. The Nazare Fenicular is an essential attraction when visiting the city and a very useful way as the slope is steep. There are three ways to get to the top of Nazare, a fenicular, a car and a path for the adventurous who want to do it on foot. The fenicular resembles a small railway car and the ride is really fun. The journey takes just over 2 minutes and the fenicular leaves every 10 minutes. Whoever goes to Nazare should not miss this opportunity.

Beautiful trip
Oct 2020
It's a short trip that take you from top to bottom Nazare cliff. It's totally worth the value (2.90 round trip) as it's more an urban service that a turistic one. But it's great to travel on it!

Updated old concept

You have to take this ride to get to Sitio, the town on the falade above Nazare. Get the return ticket, about 4 euros and enjoy the technology, the ride, the people you're with. It really is fun. It was built in the late 1800’s by a follower of Gustave Eiffel, the guy who built the tower. It has been updated and is safe. Check out the lovely chrome hand railings at the top, it is a work of art.

Great View From The Top
Jul 2019
We stayed down by the beach but we did take the funicular up to see the view from the top. Its an inexpensive ride that is quite quick. At the top there were many vendors and amazing views. A must do when in Nazare.

wonderful view of the beach of Nazare

Either take the funicular up to "upper town" or make the drive, both are worth the time. We went in December so it was not busy at all, but I hear summer can be tough.

Quick and easy!

We were staying at the top of Nazaré near the funicular station so it made sense to travel on the funicular to visit the beach and town below. If you are staying below, take a ride up for a fantastic view. They come regularly and are not expensive. One of the more modern funiculars we used during our travel in Portugal. Read up the interesting history of this one in Nazaré.

Buy the 6 ticket deal

The funicular is the best way to hop up to the top of the town. There are some wonderful restaurants up there, and the castle (lighthouse) to see.

No choice

Well, if you are there. You must use it... I mean if you attempt to go all the way up.
It might be a different way to do it but as a tourist I guess that one out is the one. It is very simple thing but absolutely worth it because you need to go all the way up.

Worth the ride
Oct 2019
Frequent trips up to and down from Sitio from where you get great views over Nazare and then have a pleasant walk to the fort/lighthouse museum and down to the north beach - so well worth it all round. The ride is fun but short and the operators are very efficient at getting everyone on and off, tickets sold etc.
