Nazaré’s Cultural Centre is located in the building where before was the Fishing Market, in the tourist locality of NazaréPortugal.

This building offers different temporary exhibitions, and they organise numerous events and cultural activities there.

In front of the building, is the Mãe Nazarena Monument to honour women whose husbands and sons went to sea over in order to sustain their families; in some cases, they never returned. It is a bronze statue, around four metres height, with a feminine figure surrounded by children. Over her head she holds an allegory related to Nazaré’s physical appearance, and anthropological and ethnographic motifs of this Portuguese area.

Created by Celestino Alves André, it was unveiled in 2005.
