Escape the hustle and bustle of Lisbon city center on an 8-hour tour of the Portuguese Centro region. Wander the medieval streets of Óbidos, visit the picturesque fishing village of Nazaré, and learn about the apparitions of the Virgin Mary at Fátima.
What to Expect
Explore some of the most important sites from Portugal's history on a full-day tour of the Centro Region from Lisbon. Visit the medieval village of Óbidos, the picturesque fisherman's town of Nazaré, and the shrine of Our Lady of Fatima.
Following your transfer by luxury van, wander the streets of the walled town of Óbidos, a medieval settlement that clings dramatically to the hillside. Journey back in time as you continue to the citadel of Obidos, a picture-perfect whitewashed village that was given as a wedding gift to Isabel of Aragon in 1282.
Take in breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean en route to Nazaré, a traditional fishing village famed for its gastronomy. Popular with surfers, the giant waves off the coast were most recently conquered by the big wave surfer, Garrett McNamara.
Next, drive to Batalha to see the 14th-century monastery of Santa Maria da Victoria, one of Portugal’s architectural highlights. End with a visit to the sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima, and learn the story of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary that have turned the parish into one of the most revered shrines in the Catholic world.
