What You Can Expect

Fátima and the Sanctuary Basilica Half Day Tour from Lisbon

Fatima, Portugal

Begin your journey by meeting your guide at Parque Edoardo VII in central Lisbon or your Lisbon hotel. Then, commence your tour with an air-conditioned coach ride to Fátima and the Sanctuary Basilica. During the drive learn how this former agrarian village evolved into an influential Catholic pilgrimage site in 1917 after three children claimed to witness an apparition of the Virgin Mary.

Alongside your guide, uncover the details of this lady later known as Our Lady of Fátima and visit the sanctuary dedicated to her. See the shrine where over 4 million worshipers travel every year to give homage. Then, explore the Chapel of Apparitions where the gravestones of two of the three children rest and where the Virgin Mary emerged in front of them nearly a century ago.

Afterwards, experience more of this historic Catholic site on your own and attend an optional mass. As the afternoon ends, get back on your coach bus to Lisbon and enjoy rural views until your tour ends at the departure point.

This was very disappointing . The bus broke down and we had to wait for another bus from Lisbon. The primary reason for the visit was to have mass at the church indoors on the hill approx. six PM. However we were told that we had to be at the bus stop at 6.30PM. Having to leave the church due to this information I arrived to find the bus trip back to Lisbon had been postponed to 7 PM. Too late to go back to the church for mass. I

This was a very disappointing trip. The bus broke down just before Fatima. We had to wait until another bus was sent from Lisbon.
There was no mass being offered at the time we arrived. The day before I had been to Fatima but was unable to receive mass. It was half way through when we arrived but had already booked an additional trip primarily to have mass. There was no mass being held
when we arrived so I went to the church on the hill. I was seated in the church and one of the tourists on our trip informed me we had
to be at the bus stop at 6 :30 PM. When I arrived I was then informed it was delayed until 7 PM. Total waste of time and money.

In a word, fantastic. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided a thorough background of the story of Fatima, in 4 languages! We were given ample time to explore the Sanctuary on our own and to take in the the atmosphere. I would highly recommend this tour.
