What You Can Expect

Fátima and the Sanctuary Basilica Half Day Tour from Lisbon

Fatima, Portugal

Meet your guide in central Lisbon or enjoy pickup from your Lisbon hotel, and then relax on the comfortable coach drive to Fátima. This once-sleepy rural village became an important Catholic pilgrimage site in 1917, when three local children claimed to have seen an apparition of the Virgin Mary, also known as Our Lady of Fátima.

With your guide, visit Our Lady of Fátima Sanctuary (Nossa Senhora de Fátima Santuario), a place of worship visited each year by more than four million pilgrims who travel to pay their respects and worship at the shrine. See the Chapel of Apparitions, the place where the Virgin Mary appeared, and see the tombstones of the two of the three shepherd kids who reported the apparition.

You’ll have free time to explore the site at your own pace, enjoy some quiet time on your own and attend mass, if you wish.

Finally, relax in your coach and admire views of the Portuguese countryside on the drive back to Lisbon.

First class tour. Bus picked us up and dropped us back to hotel. Tour guide and driver were excellent.
Highly recommended.

This tour is highly recommended! There are several good points I can enumerate:
1.        Very convenient – pickup was prompt and directly from the hotel. Drop off was directly to the hotel as well.
2.        Content – we went to Obidos, Alcobaca, Nazare, Batalha, and Fatima. This is a lot of places in one day. Our tour guide, Ana, gives remarkable information on the sites while on the bus and on the sites themselves.
3.        Value for Money – for the number of sites, experience, and Portuguese history, this brings the most bang for your buck!
4.        Free Time on the sites – there are some free time allocated for some sites.

A noteworthy point, if you are after visiting a specific site in detail, like in Fatima, this might not be the best tour for you. Because there is quite little time left for free roaming and exploring, you will quickly run out of time if you want to drill down into more details, or attend service, on the programmed sites.

Our tour guide, Vanessa, was a sophisticated guide. We not only learnt the history of Fatima, we were also enriched by her knowledgeable introduction in agriculture, culture and other aspects of the region and area wherever the coach passed by.
