It was out of season , noon time , so we rather easily found a parking spot some five minutes walk away , walked down to Forte de São Miguel Arcanjo , then went up the hill saw the statue Escultura Veado Surfista, then enjoyed the stunning Miradouro do Suberco (observation point) and the adjacent lovely chapel Ermida da Memoria ending up at the nice square O Sitio . The square would probably be crowded in season . You can take your time in one of the restaurants or cafes , brows in the few souvenir counters , visit the beautiful church Nossa Senhora da Nazare , or just enjoy people watching seating on on of the benches on the square .
We had a truly nice three hours visit in Nazare . Highly recommended .

Wow, the views are stunning from here. Park and walk around; take it all in. You can enjoy some food/drinks at one of the many cafes or just walk the cliffs and look down on the beach and waves. Be aware that there are steep cliffs and nothing stopping you from walking right off the edge.

You can look down and see all along the town of Nazare! Beautiful beaches and just a lovely spot! Definitely worth coming up here on the Funicular!

It's a very nice place with a beautiful view of Nazare. Sítio da Nazare is the upper district of Nazare. It is situated on a 318 m high rock . A beautiful place with the Nossa Senhora da Nazare sanctuary and the Ermida da Memoria chapel. There you can also use the services of numerous dining options and souvenir shops. A wonderful place, with nice people and reasonable prices. A very good place to walk. There is a funicular railway between Sítio da Nazare and the lower part of town and the beach.

Surprise yourself after going up the funicular to this "Sitio" above the city beach. Quaint shop little chapels and locals in their traditional garb. go out to the point and look at the views on both sides of the point. come back have tapas and drinks above the beach town and enjoy the view

Sitio is a great place to visit while in Nazare. A Funicular ride up is cheap, get the return ticket, and gives you a fine view as you climb the steep escarpment. The small town s a good walking space, but the Belvedere with a grand view of the city below is spectacular. The bay is known for its great waves and this is the best place to see them. We had a great Burrito at a food truck, took many photos as we walked around, and had a good coffee at one of the many coffee bars. The church is lovely, right on the main square and be sure to check lout the attached museum, some strange objects, all fascinating, The big draw here is the Black Madonna, and you can get a close up look by taking the back stairway. Incredible tile work. Very much worth a visit. Give yourselves a few good hours, The view alone is good for an hour, move around and check out the different spots.

Charming area to explore, a fair amount of authenticity amidst the typical tourist wares. We enjoyed walking around and trying some of the stands of food, then feeding the pigeons and seagulls! Funicular wasn't working at the time of our visit, but we had an easy time to park our car.

If in the area you must stop and walk down to see the amazing waves on the north beach. The local church in town is also worth seeing.
