What You Can Expect

Óbidos, Nazaré, Fátima and Batalha Day Trip

Obidos, Portugal

Head north from Lisbon on your full-day trip back to a bygone era, where small villages boast a relaxing pace and historic religious sites dot the landscape. Your first stop is Óbidos, a fortified village of whitewashed houses and narrow streets with a distinctly medieval atmosphere. With your guide, wander around the cobblestone streets and alleyways lined with colorful houses and Gothic doorways. Learn interesting facts about the village from your guide, and then enjoy free time to relax at a café or sample the traditional Ginja liqueur at one of the numerous wine shops.

Next, head to Alcobaça to visit the famous Monastery of Santa Maria d'Alcobaça, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the biggest Gothic-style church in Portugal. Continue to Nazaré, a colorful and traditional fishing villages. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (included), and then explore the streets of this popular Portuguese summer retreat.

Hop back on your coach for the drive through the beautiful Portuguese agricultural countryside, and stop at Sítio for wonderful views of the Atlantic Ocean and the pretty beaches. You’ll soon arrive in Batalha, a cute town home to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Batalha Monastery, which you’ll visit with your guide. See the intricate architecture and beautiful stained-glass windows of this Gothic masterpiece.

Continue to Fátima, once a sleepy rural village that became an important pilgrimage site in 1917 when three shepherd children reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary, also known as Our Lady of Fátima (Nossa Senhora de Fátima). Enjoy free time to visit the Sanctuary of Fátima, a basilica that honors the apparition and attracts millions of Catholic pilgrims every year who go to pay their respects to the shrine.

As you leave Fátima for the drive back to Lisbon, stop in nearby Ajulstrel to see the houses of the three shepherd children to whom the vision of Our Lady of Fátima appeared.

It was a great day traveling and see the different cities. Even the lunch was such a treat- a great day traveling outside of Lisbon

In one day, one can have a glimpse of 4 major sites of Central Portugal. A stroll through the streets of central Obidos was most pleasant, including the tasting of the local cherry liquor with chocolate. Most of the Fatima religious area was closed for renovation, I understand in preparation for Pope Francis's future visit. A delicious lunch was served in a sea-facing Nazaré restaurant. This tour should not be missed in my view.

This trip is so worth the money and the time. My tour was with Paula, she had to repeat the story in 4 different languages such an amazing job. Towards the end I said to her why dont you just do in Spanish, we the Brazilians one can understand Spanish, she said No, I cannot do that because I feel like itd be disrespectful amazing attitude!
I cannot recommend this tour highly enough!!! If youre in Lisbon area, dont hesitate, just do it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

We very much enjoyed this well-organized tour. The hotel pick-up service was an added bonus. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke three languages to our diverse group. We knew we bit off quite a bit seeing so many places in one day, but the timing was scheduled well and the bus service was excellent. Lunch was also an added bonus and one of the best parts of the trip. The meal gave us a chance to socialize with members of our group, as best we could given our language differences. Our tour guide was very pleasant and cheerful. She kept the group engaged and enthused. I would definitely consider other Viator tours on future trips. We didn't want to rent a car this trip and this Viator trip gave us a good opportunity to see the countryside around Lisbon.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015
