    The sanctuary gained international significance after three shepherd children—Lucia dos Santos and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto—reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1917. The Virgin Mary, according to the children, appeared to them six times between May 13 and October 13, 1917. The final apparition, known as the Miracle of the Sun, witnessed by thousands of people, is one of the most famous events associated with the sanctuary.

The beach is divided into two sections: Praia do Norte (North Beach) and Praia da Nazaré (South Beach). Praia do Norte is famous for its gigantic waves, particularly during the winter months when it attracts big wave surfers from around the world.

Sítio is characterized by its narrow streets, traditional whitewashed houses adorned with colorful stripes, and stunning panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Praia do Norte is a renowned beach located in Nazaré, Portugal, known worldwide for its massive waves, particularly during the winter months. It has gained international fame as one of the most challenging and awe-inspiring surfing spots on the planet.

    The impressive waves at Praia do Norte are primarily a result of the underwater Nazaré Canyon, which funnels and amplifies the incoming swells, creating waves that can reach staggering heights. These waves attract big wave surfers from around the globe who come to test their skills and courage in the face of nature's raw power.

    One of the defining features of Praia do Norte is the "Nazaré Tow Surfing Challenge," an annual big wave surfing competition organized by the World Surf League. During the event, surfers are towed into the massive waves by jet skis to tackle the towering walls of water.

    Praia do Norte also gained widespread attention in 2011 when Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara set a world record for riding the largest wave ever surfed, measured at approximately 78 feet (24 meters) high.

    Aside from its reputation as a surfing mecca, Praia do Norte offers stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding coastline, making it a popular destination for spectators and tourists as well. However, it's essential to exercise caution when visiting the beach, especially during periods of large swells, as the powerful waves can be dangerous even for experienced surfers.
