Church of Nossa Senhora da Nazaré

Nazaré, Leiria District, Portugal
16 Kudos
This amazing fourteenth century church in Nazare is a must see if you are in the city. The church is said to memorialize a miracle and if you go to the town, you must look up the legend behind it.

The church sits on a hilltop, so it is very hard to miss if you are in the area. The outside is unlike most churches you will see in the area, especially churches of that age and the inside is beyond beautiful. There are ornate golden details and, of course, tiled details along the side of the church. The alter is simple, yet complicated at the same time. It's really hard to describe its beauty, so I suggest you see it for yourself if you go to Nazare.
