Nazaré still maintains aspects of its character as a fishing village, such as traditional dress, the wives in multi-layered petticoats, the fishermen in Check shirt and black stockings and the custom of drying fish on the beach. You can get an insight into their home lives, in the early part of the 20th century, at the Fisherman’s House Museum. This is a typical fisherman’s  cottage , fully restored internally and externally by Manuel Águeda Limpinho and opened to the public in 1999. It is completely furnished down to household utensils and even miniature boats.
