What to visit? Ascensor da Nazaré
The funicular that connects Sítio to Nazaré beach was inaugurated in 1889 and is one of the oldest public facilities of its kind in Portugal. The project is authored by engineer Raul Mesnier, who also signed the projects of the famous Santa Justa elevator, as well as the Gloria and Bica funiculars in Lisbon.
The route is about 318 meters, providing a delicious 3-minute trip: it's worth repeating whenever possible. In low season the vehicles leave from 15 to 15 minutes, in high season, they leave when they are crowded.
