What You Can Expect

Óbidos, Nazaré, Fátima and Batalha Day Trip

Wander the charming streets of Óbidos

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 (if option selected), 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.

Great way to see Obidos, Alcobaca, Nazare, Batalha and Fatima in a well paced day. Excellent lunch with fellow travelers from Italy, Germany and Australia. Note that if you're interested in more beach time in Nazare you can skip the lunch.

Excellent tour -- well paced.
Apart from the religious significance of Fatima, the wonderful architecture of the monasteries we visited and the old town of Obidos remain etched.
The included lunch at Batalha was superb with excellent selection of cheese and wine.
