What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Fatima Sightseeing

Private Tour: Fatima Sightseeing

On this private tour from Lisbon, you'll journey north to the town of Fatima, famous for a religious experience three children had about 100 years ago. On May 13, 1917, three peasant children claimed to have seen an apparition of Our Lady of the Rosary (aka Our Lady of Fatima, aka the Blessed Virgin Mary). This event turned this small town, a rocky rural village that produced olive oil, into one of the most important religious sites in the world.

You’ll visit Sanctuary Square, where the basilica commemorates the apparition and protects the mortal remains of the three children. It overlooks the massive square and easily holds the thousands of people who gather here each year. If you’d like, you can light a candle like the pilgrims do in search of the protection of Our Lady of Fatima.

We had an amazing guide (Filippia) who not only taught us all about Portugal, but also was very knowledgeable about Fatima. She took us to the homes of the shepherd children as well. On the way back she gave us tips on things to do and where to go in Lisbon. A highlight of our trip!!

Our tour guide/driver, Miquel was not only well-informed, but extremely professional and personable. Taking a private tour allows for a much greater appreciation and better understanding of the site you are visiting. Admittedly it was pricey, but after considering the time it took us to travel there, it was well worth the money. Fatima is a most spiritual, restful and beautiful sacred place. I would return again and spend even more time (the tour was a half day). Highly recommend this tour and ask for Miguel. Beth and Gerry Wagner

The day of our trip was 13th October and also my partners birthday. This was due to be one of the busiest days of the year but not withstanding this the tour far exceeded our expectations. The guide was extremely pleasant, considerate and informative, not only about Fatima but also Portugese history and answered all our questions. We were picked up from our hotel without drama and the transportation was first class. It certainly was a most memorable day and a birthday present my partner will never forget .
