Capture the historical charm of four rural, Portuguese towns on a full-day guided tour of Óbidos, Fátima, Nazaré and Batalha from Lisbon. Alongside your expert guide, you’ll discover Óbidos’ fascinating medieval heritage and relish a delicious lunch in the small fishing town of Nazaré. Explore the Monastery of Santa Maria d'Alcobaça and Batalha Monastery, both UNESCO World Heritage-listed landmarks. During a visit to Fátima, you’ll wander through the Sanctuary of Fátima and see one of the world’s most famous Christian pilgrimage sites.
After hotel pickup in Lisbon, you’ll greet your guide and hop into your air-conditioned coach. On arrival in Óbidos — a walled medieval town replete with maze-like streets and historical houses — you’ll have free time to enjoy the town's Gothic architecture.
Then, either unwind at a café or head to one of the abundant wine shops to taste a classic Ginja liqueur. Continue in your coach to Alcobaça to see the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Monastery of Santa Maria d'Alcobaça, the largest gothic monastery in Portugal.
Afterward, take a break for lunch in Nazaré — a quaint fishing village — and enjoy classic Portuguese dishes before exploring the popular Portuguese vacation spot. Here, you’ll absorb panoramic views of Portugal’s rugged Atlantic coastline and capture numerous photographs.
Head next to the village of Batalha, home to the UNESCO-listed Batalha Monastery; step inside this classic gothic building and admire its elegant design and ornate stained-glass windows.
Your last highlight is a visit to Fátima, famous for the 1917 sighting of the Virgin Mary by three agrarian children. Every year, Fátima plays host to millions of Christian pilgrims who pay homage at the Sanctuary of Fátima, also known as Our Lady of Fátima (Nossa Senhora de Fátima). You’ll have the opportunity to explore the basilica and shrine that honors the Virgin Mary independently.
This tour was very nice. The towns visited were incredible and we had Maria as our tour guide. She was informative and cheerful
I totally recommend this tour. I believe that combining this tour with a visit to Sintra covers the best of Portugal
A great day tour. Only one problem. This was a Monday tour. Un-benounced to us was that on Sunday there were over 500 fires started all over Portugal by the mafia, in order to buy up cheap land. The smoke was so strong that it permeated the bus. All the sky's where thick with grey smoke. So pictures were not bright, sunny and clear. I needed a mask for my asthma. The guide never mention the problem to us. And I was getting scared since I remember the 60 that died in the fires in August..I believe. I was sick for 2 weeks coughing due to the smoke....
They should have provided masks for those who would need one. And be honest about the what area and concerns we would forthcome.
Go see all of these towns.......fabulous buildings......
Это было изумительное путешествие давшее нам более полное представление о португалии. Абсолютно разные городки красивые и уютные с великолепными историческими памятниками. спасибо очень рекомендую.
This full day visiting the important and varied places was fantastic. Our guide was fluent in her explanations as well as ability to speak the necessary languages. The detailed information was greatly appreciated visiting these wonderful gems of the region and left us feeling the desire to return and spend additional time in a few of them. It was a long day but worth the effort despite a lack luster lunch in Nazare . Thank You for a wonderful experience.

Really great trip!
Everything was great!
My tour was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative.
This was a great experience, I would have preferred a smaller group instead of a bus load of folks.
