Full description
Begin your amazing journey by meeting your friendly local guide at your accommodation. Sit back & relax while traveling to the center of Portugal and hearing about the region. After driving 150 kilometers (90 miles) north of Lisbon, arrive at your first destination, the region of Fátima. Explore the religious capital of Portugal. Visit the Chapel of Apparitions to see the stone pillar that marks the spot where the Virgin Mary appeared, the Shrine, the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fátima. Enjoy free time to enjoy the sight. Learn interesting facts about Fátima and Portuguese Catholic and religious traditions from your guide. At the other end of Fatima’s Shrine is the Most Holy Trinity Church (Lesser Basilica, from 2007). Witness this modern piece of architecture. In 1917 a religious event changed the history of this location forever. 3 shepherds witnessed successive apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima (another name for the Virgin Mary) turning it into one of the most important landmarks in Marian worship, attracting pilgrims from all over the world. Next, be whisked away to a local village 2 kilometers away. This is where the 3 young shepherds (responsible for the importance of Fatima’s landmark) were born. Get an insight into their lives and costumes, along with a context of this landmark of Portuguese history.
