Gruta do Forno de Orca, localizada na base de um promontório, ao lado da Praia do Norte, supõe uma história geológica da Nazaré e está intimamente relacionada entre a paisagem e a ocupação humana do território.

The Grotto do Forno de Orca, located in the base of a hill next to Praia do Norte Beach, is part of Nazaré’s history. It is closely related to the landscape or the area as well as human occupation there.

Shaped over an structure of limestone rock, this natural cave shows evidences of the maritime erosive activity over time.

When the sea is calmed, the cave is located pretty far from the water, so the access to it is easy. However, when there is high tide and violent swell, the waves beat against the cliff and water goes into the cave.
