Lisbon, Portugal, Fátima, Portugal
1 - 6
Spend the day visiting Fátima, the religious capital of Portugal, on a private tour departing from Lisbon. Gaze in awe at the basilica, built where the Virgin Mary appeared to 3 children in 1917, making the location a sacred site of the Catholic faith.
Take a private tour away from the hustle and bustle of Lisbon to Fátima, one of the most sacred places in all of Portugal. It is here where, almost 100 years ago, the Virgin Mary revealed herself to 3 shepherd children. A shrine, Our Lady of Fátima Basilica, was later constructed in the place where the apparitions are said to have appeared. Since 1953, it has been a destination for Catholic pilgrimages.
Depart from Lisbon in the morning on this full-day trip. Once in Fátima, stand in the Sanctuary Square outside and listen as your tour guide tells you the history of this religious town and its important landmarks. Spend the next two hours walking around, and pay a visit to the basilica or the neighboring Church of the Holy Trinity. Later, spend some time walking around the nearby Valinhos neighborhood, where the 3 shepherd children once lived.
On your 90-minute journey back to Lisbon, gaze out the window at the passing countryside on Highway A1, or take advantage of the free wi-fi on board to surf the Internet.
