What You Can Expect

Private Tour to Obidos, Nazare, Alcobaca or Batalha and Fatima

Alcobaca, Portugal

Start with a visit to Fatima and its Sanctuary, the site where Our Lady of Fatima appeared in 1917. Since then, millions of pilgrims go there to pay their promises to pray or just to feel its mystical strength! The Sanctuary Square is so big that it can only be described by numbers: it can receive simultaneously 300,000 visitors and it's twice the size of St. Peter's Square in the Vatican.

From Fatima, continue to the Monastery of Batalha, (or Alcobaca as an option) the biggest example in Portugal of the late gothic Portuguese style, where you can find a mix of the gothic style with the Manuelino Art - symbol of the Portuguese maritime expansion. If you choose to go to Alcobaca instead then you will visit the famous 12th century monastery. This monastery is not only a beautiful architectural example, but it also has the monuments in memory of King D. Pedro I and D. Ines de Castro.

After lunch in the fishing village of Nazare, your last stop of the day will invite you to travel back in time to the true medieval town of Obidos. In Obidos all of this royal tradition of Portuguese Kings and Queens was kept till today including the old wall that surrounds the city.

As this tour is private, you have some choices:

  • Alcobaca or Batalha - For those who wish to visit Fatima.
  • Alcobaca and Batalha - for those who do not wish to visit Fatima.

Our trip was fantastic. Our guide Tiago was excellent, . His English was extremely good and it made our understanding of our tour knowledgeable. We were a family of 8 so we had the tour for ourselves. enjoyed very much.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2011

Knowledgeable and attentive guide. Great tour about 10 hours long. Try and find a less touristy lunch spot, as it is your choice, and maybe that would speed things along. Monastaries were amazing, as well as the beach in Nazare. Top notch!
