Overview
Enjoy this 5-hour guided tour for no more than 8 to Fátima from Lisbon and see the famous Fátima Sanctuary, erected on the site where the Three Shepherds are said to have been blessed with the sight of the Holy Mary. See the old and new basilicas and attend a mass if you want, all at the same location. See the house were the children used to live, and get an idea of what the social conditions were like in early 1900s rural Lisbon.
Highlights
  • Visit the important Catholic pilgrimage town of Fátima on this half-day tour
  • Explore the grounds where the Virgin Mary is believed to have appeared
  • A maximum of eight guests to ensure a personalized experience
  • Option to attend mass at the Fátima Sanctuary (time dependent)
What to Expect
This small group tour begins with pickup at your Lisbon hotel or central Lisbon meeting point before setting out on the 80-mile (178-kilometer) journey to Fátima. In Fátima, your guide tells you and your small group the story of the events in 1917. Following a short tour of the sanctuary, you enjoy free time to explore the area with the option to attend mass at the Fátima Sanctuary (time dependent). Visit the Chapel of Apparitions, the spot where the Virgin Mary is believed to have appeared and explore the two grand basilicas in the area—Our Lady of the Rosary and Holy Trinity Basilica. Next, head to the small town of Aljustrel to visit the homes of the three children—Francisco, Jacinta Marto, and Lucia—who reported seeing the Virgin Mary. Your tour ends with drop-off back in Lisbon’s city center, either at Marquês de Pombal or Restauradores Square.
