What Will You Do

Dry Fish Market - Yolk Nazarenes - Typical Costume

Meet the Nazarenes and talk to them at the Dry Fish Market, where every day a dozen women continue to dry the fish in paneiros and where you can observe the colourful traditional boats exposed on the beach.

The Nazarene women's costume, rich and artistically produced, is linked to the mysticism of number seven and the life of the sea. Composed of seven skirts, white and coloured, pieces of crochet or lace, which end with one in Scottish cloth, cashmere, pleated terylene, or blue cheetah with velvet bar, represent the seven virtues, the seven days of the week, the seven colours of the rainbow or the seven waves of the sea.
