Full description
Follow in the footsteps of Catholic pilgrims on a full-day sightseeing tour of Central Portugal from Lisbon. Transfer from the Portuguese capital, and drive through a vast variety of landscapes. Your first stop will be the extraordinary town of Fátima, where an apparition of the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared before 3 children every month between May 1917 and October 1917. Now one of the major shrines of the Catholic faith, the complex contains the tombs of 2 of the young shepherd children, the crown of the Virgin in the Chapel of the Apparitions, and a section of the Berlin Wall (said to be a tribute to God’s part in the fall of communism) . Next, go to the city of Batalha to see the 14th-century Batalha Monastery, built by King John I to thank the Virgin Mary for the Portuguese victory over the Spanish during the Battle of Aljubarrota in 1385. Most of the monument was completed by 1434, but there are Manueline influences added in the 15th and 16th centuries. Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant (own expense) far from the tourist crowds, and get a taste for authentic Portuguese food. Continue to the fishing port of Nazaré for panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Popular with surfers, Nazaré was the site of a 79-foot wave, surfed by Garrett McNamara in 2011. Finally, tour the picturesque town of Óbidos, taken from the Muslims in 1148. Forming part of the dowry of numerous Portuguese queens, Óbidos maintains its medieval feel inside the old city walls, with cobblestone streets and flower-bedecked houses.

Very good tour, 100% recommended. Once the purchase of the tour had been confirmed, I was informed that it would be in English (I do not speak English) and I thought it would be a failure, but the places and the guide Tania, made this take a back seat. Very good guide.

I love this tour. It was an amazing experience with Tania, our tour guide, who has vast knowledge of Portugal history. The tour was never rushed and we were given enough time for ourselves to wander around a certain area. Safety and security was also highlighted and i’ve felt that i was really taken care of. Thank you very much Lisbon Riders specially to Tanya for making this tour an unforgettable experience.

Tania was amazing! Had to start with that! And the group we managed to get was so amazing, we ended up having lunch together and sharing life stories. There is time for everything, to see, to take pictures, to enjoy the moment, even if most times you wish you could stay for much much longer. Strongly recommend it!
