Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Nazaré

Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Nazaré
Place: Nazaré
Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Nazaré
The 17th-century church resulted from remodelling of the primitive 14th century church built in honour of Nossa Senhora da Nazaré, which as a result of the growing popularity of the cult became too small in order to host pilgrimages. The church is located in Sítio, near a place where Our Lady reportedly appeared. The large-scale façade, dominated by two bell towers, is flanked by two buildings - the hospital and old palace that used to house kings and other important noblemen when they travelled to this site.

The interior includes 17th century Dutch azulejo tiles that cover the nave and paintings in the Sacristy that describe the history of the miracle. The statue of Nossa Senhora da Nazaré, which is believed to be the original, is located above the church altar and attracts a major pilgrimage every year, that takes place on September 8.
