What You Can Expect
Next, visit the 14th-century Batalha Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that illustrates the rich artistic heritage of the late 1300s. Discover the impressive royal burial site at the basilica’s Founder’s Chapel, where King João I, Queen Philippa of Lancaster and their son Prince Henry the Navigator were buried.
Take a short break for lunch (own expense) in Nazaré, a quaint fishing town famous for its variety of restaurants and cafes. A popular summer retreat for the Portuguese, the village offers an interesting insight into local life. Next, head to the Nazaré cliffs and continue through the picturesque villages of Foz do Arelho and São Martinho do Porto. Admire views of agricultural fields and the Atlantic Ocean as you drive along the dramatic, cliff-lined coast.
Finally, make your way to the medieval village of Óbidos. Founded in 208 BC, Óbidos is commonly known in Portugal as the 'wedding present town', as it was a gift from King Dinis to Queen Isabel on their wedding day in 1282. Follow your guide to one of the numerous wine shops and sample the Ginja liqueur, and then enjoy free time to explore the village’s medieval fortress, narrow streets, colorful houses and Gothic doorways and windows decorated with flowerpots and dazzling tiles. Grab a snack or browse around the tiny shops that offer a varied collection of beautiful handmade ceramic art before making your way back to Lisbon.
Wow is not a big enough word. I learnt a lot about the 3 locations that I visited and also tried out some of the most excellent seafood I had ever eaten in Nazare too
Fatima was a very moving experience. We also visited the church in Battahlia which was amazing. Had a fantastic seafood lunch across the beach in Nazarre and finished the day with a lovely afternoon in one if the most prettiest places in Portugal, Obidos, hopefully we get the chance to go there again. Our tour guide, Nadia, was the best guide we have had so far. She was very welcoming, fun to be with and very knowledgeable, she was just great. We'll done Nadia.
