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.

I had a fantastic time on this tour yesterday! Our guide Jaime was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, flexible, and fun the entire day. Our group was very small 7 tourists total, which definitely made the tour more personable. The highlights for me were the stops in Fátima, Batalha, and Nazaré. Definitely choose to go into the Monastery of Batalha as it was very beautiful and has a unique history. In Nazaré, take up Jaime's recommendation for a local fish restaurant Rosa Dos Ventos because it was delicious!

For those who are doing this tour to specifically experience Fátima, the only downside is that only an hour is spent there. Please keep that in mind when booking. However, the other locations were amazing and not to be missed! I'm very glad to have experienced them all in one day!

Our guide Francisco was friendly and chatty, keen to know about us as well as informative about the places on the trip. The itinerary was the right mix between driving and time to explore and there was plenty to see. For us maybe 10 more minutes at Ba

This was a very good tour. Isnide Lisbon does it just right by having small groups. I appreciatedon and #39;t that they let solo travellers like me book without requiring a minimum of two people. The van was comfortable. The guide was flexible. And the sights visited were well worth it.
