Full description

Take a full-day, multi-city tour that brings you to some of Portugal's most popular medieval and 20th-century architectural and religious marvels, beginning in Lisbon and ending in Fátima. Depart from Lisbon by bus at 9:00 and head to Óbidos, the 'wedding present town'. This is the town that King Dinis gave to his bride, Queen Isabel, on their wedding day in 1282.

This romantic village is surrounded by the 45-foot-high walls of a medieval Moorish castle, the famous Pousada do Castelo. Stop for lunch in colorful Nazaré, a traditional Portuguese fishing village. If time permits, head to Sítio to enjoy a beautiful view of the beach and ocean.

Then, kick off the afternoon with a trip to Batalha Monastery, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, with beautiful stained-glass windows and the Manueline-style Royal Cloister. Arrive at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima, a center of Catholic faith and globally recognized pilgrimage destination. Housed in the Basilica are the tombs of Lúcia, Francisco, and Jacinta, peasant children who, despite threats, never denied witnessing the apparition of Mary.

The heart of the shrine is in the Chapel of Apparitions. Schedule permitting, you can attend Mass. Afterwards, you will return to Lisbon on a route that takes you through a rich agricultural region.

My main objective was to go to Fatima, the time in the Shrine was good. Lunch was correct (coffee is additional payment) it was in a Hotel in Fatima. The bus very comfortable and with Wi-Fi, the times were fulfilled perfectly. Nazareth can be expendable (at least in this season when there are no big waves), it is a windy beach with a couple of fishing boats. The Monastery in Batalha is very beautiful, there is not enough time to visit it in its entirety (Cloister and unfinished chapels) without hesitation, Obidos is the icing on the cake, not only because of the liquor, it is really very very beautiful. The guide was like lunch only correct.

This trip was a good idea, I am really very pleased. But ... the name can be a bit confusing as this is not a full day trip to Fatima. It is of course a full day trip, but there is too little time for Fatima. I read about it in previous reviews (for which I am very grateful), so I decided to go for the option without lunch. For those who have purchased lunch, there is just over an hour for a visit to the sanctuary. People who would like to participate in the Rosary and Holy Mass must, unfortunately, resign from lunch. Then at 12.00 they can participate in the Rosary in the Chapel of the Apparitions and at 12.30 in the Holy Mass in the same place. I provide this information to avoid disappointment. Besides, everything was very well organized, also the meeting at the meeting point. I was very impressed with the guide, her knowledge and commitment. Thank you very much!

Good experience with the narration of the guide in English and Spanish, however, the route is not the one indicated initially starting from óbidos and ending in Fatima (they started in Fatima) so when selecting the option with lunch, time was limited to see the whole sanctuary and visit both basilicas, especially being a holiday and with high attendance in the morning. Lunch was good and the tour with very interesting places to visit, it is worth the experience.
