Private tour allows for a more personalized experience
In the afternoon, meet your guide for a pickup from your central Lisbon hotel and begin your private voyage to Fatima. As you drive north, learn about this famous religious sanctuary where on May 13, 1917 three shepherd's children allegedly saw an apparition of Our Lady of Fatima dressed in white (aka Our Lady of the Rosary). As you approach this small stone-laden town, witness how after 100 years this former olive farming village has become one of the world’s most significant places of Christian sanctity. Begin with a tour of Sanctuary Square and marvel at the town’s basilica where the three children who claimed to see the apparition are buried and honored. Admire the grandiosity of the square where thousands of pilgrims assemble every year to pay homage. Perhaps, take a candle and illuminate it in the same manner as a pilgrim in remembrance and safeguard of the Virgin Mary.
