What You Can Expect

Fátima, Nazaré, and Óbidos Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon

Fatima, Nazare and Obidos Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon

Meet your guide in central Lisbon and hop into an air-conditioned minivan for your small-group guided day trip to Fátima, Nazaré and Óbidos. Begin with a journey north to the once quaint village of Fátima now a prominent Christian sanctuary. Arrive and learn about the three shepherd children who claimed to see Our Lady of Fátima dressed in white in 1917. Stroll with your guide to the famous Sanctuary of Fatima, a basilica which draws millions of religious people annually who homage to the shrine.

From here, travel to the 14th-century Batalha Monastery renowned for its compelling examples of of ornate gothic architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the monastery, follow your guide into the royal tomb and see the Founder’s Chapel. Hear about the noble family that rests here including Queen Philippa of Lancaster, King João I and their heir Prince Henry the Navigator.

Continue to the quiet fishing village of Nazaré, a favorite summer vacation spot for the Portuguese. Here, take a break for lunch at a local cafe or restaurant (own expense). Learn about the locals who fish here before heading onward to the Nazaré cliffs. Reach the gorgeous small towns of São Martinho do Porto and Foz do Arelho and whip out your camera for quaint farm-country shots. 

Next, cruise along the impressive cliff-laden coast as you journey to Óbidos, a medieval village established in 208 BC. Enter past its fortified walls and discover slender streets, gothic facades, and vibrant houses. Alongside your guide, learn about King Dinis who gifted Óbidos to his new wife Queen Isabel in 1282 which led locals to refer to Óbidos as ‘wedding present town.’ As you walk notice the window sills decorated with flower pots and colorful tiles. Then, stop at a local wine shop for a taste of Ginja liqueur, a cherry flavored spirit and perhaps savor a snack. Finally, enjoy perusing through an artisan’s shop with a wide variety of handmade ceramics before returning to Lisbon where your tour concludes.

The day trip is a good way to see different regions of Portugal that are not far from Lisbon. Fatima is an interesting pilgrimage site because of its vastness, and especially meaningful if one is of the Catholic faith. Nazare is a beach town and fishing village, but more of a small city on the sea than a village and Obidos is a picturesque hill town with wonderful and reasonably priced shops offering local products and beautiful views of the valley. A lovely way to end the 8-hour tour away from Lisbon.

The trip and tour was everything and more than we expected. Our driver and tour guied, Vlad was GREAT! He kept us all going and informed and we felt completely safe and comfortable with him. He loves his job and it showed through. I totally recommend this as a way to see not only Fatima, but the extra sites that are included. The value for what we got to see and do exceeded our expectations. What a great way to get out and see a side of Portugal that not everyone gets to. Our time in Portugal was limited, but by taking this tour we felt like we got to experience so much more! Thank you!!
