Quick Guide To Nazaré, Portugal
Fish Drying Racks
Along Nazare’s oceanfront, stop to marvel the locals drying their fresh catch of fish in the baking sun and mending their boats, adjacent to sunbathing and frolicking holidaymakers. Fishermen stash cigarettes and fishhooks in their stocking caps, as they carry out their work. Traditions run deep.
A flotilla of sun-dried and salted fish are crucified on nets pulled tightly around timber frames and left under the beating sun, in what resembles a mackerel and sardines crucifixion zone.
