Tradition

This land is filled with tradition, where history is marked by its distinct people and culture is unique. One of the best known traditions of Nazaré is more specifically of its fisherwomen is the 7 skirts they wear. The elders say that they represent the seven virtues, the seven days of the week, the seven colours of the rainbow or the seven waves of the sea. The women used to wear these skirts while they anxiously waited for the husbands or sons who were out fishing. Their outfits also served to protect their shoulders and legs from the biting cold.

Distinguished by its history, tradition and legends, the fishing village of Nazaré continues to be the choice selection as a unique tourist destination.
