Foggy it was. We started the day at the North Canyon (Praia do Norte) and could barely see the surfers in the water. This location was recently known worldwide by the surf enthusiasts when Garrett McNamara surfed a giant wave (23,8 m - 78 feet). After that, Carlos Burle surfed another one that can possibly be the largest wave ever ridden. We’ll have to go back in winter time and see the big ones for ourselves.
We had lunch at the “Sítio”, an old village on a top of a cliff. Fortunately the day rose up a little. We then went to the lighthouse and after … “Praia”. Praia and Sítio are linked by the Nazaré Funicular, a funicular railway.
The town is famous for its traditional costumes worn by the fishermen and their wives (a headscarf and embroidered aprons over seven flannel skirts in different colours). Can still be seen in our days, you know?
