Begin your journey by meeting your guide at Parque Edoardo VII in central Lisbon or your Lisbon hotel. Then, commence your tour with an air-conditioned coach ride to Fátima and the Sanctuary Basilica. During the drive learn how this former agrarian village evolved into an influential Catholic pilgrimage site in 1917 after three children claimed to witness an apparition of the Virgin Mary.
Alongside your guide, uncover the details of this lady later known as Our Lady of Fátima and visit the sanctuary dedicated to her. See the shrine where over 4 million worshipers travel every year to give homage. Then, explore the Chapel of Apparitions where the gravestones of two of the three children rest and where the Virgin Mary emerged in front of them nearly a century ago.
Afterwards, experience more of this historic Catholic site on your own and attend an optional mass. As the afternoon ends, get back on your coach bus to Lisbon and enjoy rural views until your tour ends at the departure point.
