We walked to the funicular cable car just a block away from the hotel. It's been in operation since 1889. We were taken to Upper Nazare called Sitio with a great view of the coast to the south. The cliff that the cable car climbs is 360 feet high and the tallest cliffside in the country. We visited the parish church and street vendors. Of course we also had a stop for vinho at an outdoor cafe where we watched a line of bikers from Croatia ride by.
By far the best meal of the trip was found tonight at Taberna da Praia. For $50 we enjoyed a cheese board, seafood, and a bottle of vinho.
