Head out on a trip to Fatima, the religious capital of Portugal, whose basilica honors the appearance of Our Lady of Fatima (another name for the Virgin Mary) in 1917. Approximately four million pilgrims make their way here every year in hopes of seeing the Lady of Fatima appear. On this half-day tour, your guide will show you this world-famous pilgrimage site and tell you interesting facts about Portugal's history and religion.
On this half-day tour from Lisbon, journey 1.5 hours north to the town of Fatima, the world-famous home of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima. On May 13, 1917, three peasant children claimed to have seen an apparition of Our Lady of the Rosary (aka Our Lady of Fatima or the Blessed Virgin Mary). The event turned this small town, a rural village that produced olive oil, into one of the most important Christian sites on the planet. There, your guide will give you a short introduction about Fatima and its point of interest. Enjoy your 1.5-hour free time and visit the celebrated sanctuary, which has been one of the biggest Catholic shrines in the world. Light a candle and feel the spiritual vibe, and then visit the Chapel of Apparitions in the center of the basilica, the exact location of the sighting. It is marked by a marble pillar that holds a statue of the Virgin Mary.
