Upon arrival to the Fátima, we begin the tour of the religious articles factory where you can purchase your third to be blessed in the sanctuary. Visit the Sanctuary, a place where Our Lady appeared to the little shepherds in 1917 to transmit 3 messages: The End of the First World War, the fall of Communism and the attack on Pope John Paul II. Fátima is one of the most important Catholic Sanctuaries in the World. If you wish, there will be a free time for you to attend the mass.
The tour then follows to the city of Batalha where we will visit the Batalha convent. Classified by UNESCO as World Patrimony, this Gothic monastery was born from the vow made by D. Joao I to Santa Maria da Vitória, as a thank you for the success of the Castilian troops, in the battle of Aljubarrota (August 14, 1385). It is the most complete example of the Gothic in Portugal.
We continue to the Monastery of Alcobaça. UNESCO Patrimony in Portugal, Founded in 1178 by the Order of Cister, in fulfillment of the vote of donation made by D. Afonso Henriques. Where are buried D. Pedro and Inês de Castro, couple who have lived a love story with a tragic end.
Then we’ll visit Nazaré. A Villa with a spectacular beach, the white houses of fishermen and huge cliffs over a sea of intense blue, that make this fishing village a tourist destination of choice. Visit to the cliff, site of the famous legend of Nazaré.
