Fatima: The famous Marian Sanctuary of Fatima is without a doubt one of the largest pilgrimage centers in the world. Millions of people come here annually to pay homage to the three shepherd children who witnessed the apparitions of the Virgin Mary in the fields of “Cova da Iria”. Free time to attend Mass (optional), visit the Chapel of the Apparitions where you can see the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. We will also visit the Basilica where we can find the tombs of Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco (the last two were canonized by Pope Francis in May 2017, thus becoming the youngest saints of the Catholic Church). As we continue, we will visit the modern church of the Blessed Trinity of Fatima, which seats 8,633 people and has an area of 40,000 m2. The church was designed and projected by the Greek architect, Alexandros Tombazis. You can shop for religious items for you, your family and friends.
Batalha monastery: The Monastery of Batalha was ordered to be built by King João I to celebrate the Portuguese victory of the famous battle of Aljubarrota in 1385. This UNESCO World Heritage Site monument is one of the best examples of European Gothic architecture, in its last stages. The interior houses the Church of “Santa Maria da Vitória”, the highest in Portugal with an amazing 32,5 meters in height. This monastery , symbol of the Portugal’s national pride is without a doubt one of the most beautiful models of Portuguese medieval architecture.
Nazare: In the last century, the old fishing village of Nazare became one of the most sought after beach resorts by Portuguese tourists to spend their summer. The wonderful white sandy beaches of enormous length captivate all those who come through here, whether to enjoy a weekend or simply to have a great delicious meal by the sea. But Nazare became known worldwide because of its giant waves in “Praia Norte”. The world record was conquered here for surfing a giant 29- meter wave by Garret McNamara, an American from the state of Hawaii. Stop for photo taking.
Obidos: The town of Obidos is an ancient Roman city that continued flourishing even after the fall of the empire due to the huge commercial activity of products done by sea. During the Middle Ages, a wall was built around it after being conquered by the first king of Portugal, Afonso I. Obidos is the best example of a medieval town in Portugal. As we walk through this walled town, we go back in time and find narrow cobblestone alleys, houses with secular facades painted in white, a lively shopping area, and a number of churches that were built throughout the centuries. Here, we can imagine travelling back to the time of kings and queens. We get the sensation of the battles fought here for every piece of land. We won’t leave without tasting the famous “Ginga de Obidos”, a local sweet liquor served on a small chocolate cup.
