Nazaré council has decided to cancel a tender for the installation of a zip-line between the famous Sítio spot and the beach, home to monster waves

The council backtracked after the project was challenged by the local population, concerned about its impact on the image of village’s headland.


The zipline project consisted of an 800m-long aerial steel cable linking old Nazaré town to the beach. It provided for the concession of a private company for a period of 20 or 25 years.
