This Cistercian monastery built between 1178-1834 features superb gothic architecture even though the entrance is designed in the Baroque style. The monastery features the Hall of Kings, a beautiful cloister, refectory hall, original kitchen and dormitory. You can imagine what life would have been like in this monastery. This is well worth the visit.

Very pleasant location with mostly Portuguese tourism. Highly recommended. I have travelled a lot in Europe and elsewhere and I am normally not easily impressed.

People come up to the top of this high hill for the view. Despite the crowds it is still worth climbing to the top by the cable car. In the space of 15 minutes the car covers a distance of 318 meters (50 of which are in a tunnel) with a slope of 42%. Adults pay 1.20€ and children .90€.

We intended to spend the day on the beach at Sao Martinez, it was so crammed we couldn't park anywhere and we're stuck in traffic jams. Found a back route that bypassed the town totally and led us past fields to Salgado. It is a little tricky to find and only one restaurant and a small cafe nearby up the mountain. Only locals seemed to be here. The beach was beautifully clean, lovely Mountains, soft sand and turquoise water. The day we visited the waves were seriously huge however. At least 10 feet high so life guard was manning the shore line to ensure no swimming. Not that I would have been crazy enough to attempt it anyway! Still a beautiful spot despite the ability to swim. Watching the waves crash was an activity in itself! Took my 2 year old accompanied by my parents who are in their 60s. We all enjoyed it! Was great to be away from the crowds!

O Sitio was a great place away from the crowd's of downtown Nazare - what spectacular views! There were tourist shops, cafes, restaurants and little grocery stores close to the centre. Steps lead down the cliffs into Nazare, or if you don't want to walk, there is a cable car available for a small fee.

The only restaurant located on the Promenade (beach side). A lot of Portuguese people come here for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is not cosy, but it is good, staff are friendly. Especially in September when you can have the Sapateira (crab) for 10,60€

While most churches and monasteries in Portugal are richly decorated and lavishly gilded, this monastery and surrounding buildings are in stark contrast. It is Gothic beauty in stark white limestone, built for Bernard de Clairvaux and 999 Cisternian monks, the idea being that they were not to be distracted by earthly art, but to spend their time in prayer and contemplation. Our sense of awe was so great that we simply stopped walking around with our group and sat in the chapel and prayed.

Get outside of the major cities and visit Alcobaça. The highlight is a spectacular 11th century monastery with a large open space around it that allows for great photos. Lots of outdoor cafes and great restaurants, and easy to walk around. Nearby are other great locations, such as the beachfront town of Nazaré (with spectacular seafood), the larger city of Caldas da Rainha, the ancient walled city of Obidos, the monastery of Batalha, and a variety of churches and Castles. And, of course, being Portugal, it's hard to find a bad meal anywhere. Plenty of wonderful cafes and restaurants. Do not miss this town!

Walking guided tours in the vicinities of charming Portuguese town Sao Martinho do Porto. Westportugal outdoors offers walks suitable for people of all fitness levels. Several tracks along-shore Atlantic, during which time participants will be exposed to the natural beauty, get general local historical, cultural information and enjoy stunning views.
A super safe beach and a boardwalk that stretches from the town all the way to Salir do Porto. Walks across to the lighthouse but beware of the crumbling cliffs.
